Thu 29 November - Developing Non-Religious Pastoral Support

Humanists UK is committed to ensuring that all people with non-religious beliefs have access to pastoral support, just as religious people have access to such support. It does this through its pastoral arm, Humanist Care. We are also committed to ensuring that non-religious people should be able and capable of providing pastoral support to all those who want it, irrespective of their religion or belief.
 
We are building a network of Humanists UK accredited non-religious pastoral carers to provide that support, and now have nearly 150 operating across a range of institutional settings throughout the UK.
 
Simon O'Donoghue will cover the rationale for a non-religious pastoral support service in institutional and community settings, and highlight some of the key challenges that have had to be overcome to establish the service, as well as the current and future opportunities.
 
Simon became Humanists UK’s first full-time Head of Pastoral Support in early 2016.
 
Whilst working for a mental health charity earlier in his career, Simon set up many support groups across the UK for service users and carers, and he helped campaign on a number of initiatives related to mental health equality. He then went on to be the first male employed by a domestic violence organisation in Cheshire, where he established a refuge for male victims and a voluntary CBT programme for abusive men.
 
We'll be going over the road to the Old Post Office pub after the talk - you're very welcome to join us!

HEIGH HO, HEIGH HO, ITS OFF TO THE EPSTEIN THEATRE WE GO!
 
LHK Productions return with a timeless tale and one of the nation’s favourite pantomimes when Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs comes to The Epstein Theatre this festive season!
 
How Clean Is your House? and Celebrity Big Brother star Kim Woodburn leads an all-star cast as the Wicked Queen. Plus, Britain’s best loved and most entertaining spiritual medium Derek Acorah will be using his psychic ability to determine who is the fairest of them all as the Magic Mirror.
 
The full cast includes voice of the airwaves, Radio City 2’s Claire Simmo as the Fairy; Britain’s Got Talent star Lewis Pryor storms back on the Epstein stage as Muddles; and Michael Chapman will have audiences rolling in the aisles as everyone’s favourite Dame. After fleeing the Kingdom to escape the Wicked Queen’s evil plans Snow White seeks refuge with seven dwarfs living in the forest.
 
Complete with wonderful songs and choreography as well as poisoned apples, magic mirrors and of course that much loved panto magic, Snow White will have audiences on the edge of their seat.
 
Kim Woodburn will not be appearing in any of the 10 am performances. Derek Acorah will appear as the magic mirror via the power of video projection and does not appear in person.
