TONIGHT’S MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE RE-ARRANGED FOR THE AUTUMN
Simon O’Donoghue is the Head of Pastoral Support at Humanists UK and he is responsible for the training, development, and management of a UK wide network of over 200 non-religious pastoral carers. Simon also sits on the board of European Humanist Professionals as their Quality Assurance Officer, and is the first non-religious person to chair the Pastoral, Spiritual and Religious Care Network in Health.
In his talk Simon will cover the development of non-religious pastoral care over the last ten years and the significant challenges encountered in establishing the Humanists UK’s Non-religious Pastoral Support Network in the UK. He will also look at how those challenges have been overcome and how non-religious pastoral support has now become an accepted part of the holistic care provision in hospitals, prisons, and universities.
