Occasionally our older young people have gone on to be young leaders within the groups and we support and encourage this however there is no pressure on them to do so!
We pride ourselves on the way we cater for those with learning and physical difficulties and encourage young people to help each other with whatever difficulties they experience.
The leaders and helpers of all of the groups are volunteers and work closely together as a team in a “non-hierarchical” manner, in the same way as the group dynamics work for the young people we respect each others' differences and abilities and encourage leaders to be themselves. Perhaps surprisingly for a church youth group, our leadership team do not all regularly attend Grove Lane services, and stem from a wide variety of faith backgrounds.
All of our leaders/helpers follow the Grove Lane “Safe to Grow” child protection policy and have been CRB checked to work with these groups. There are often opportunities for adults to volunteer with our groups.
