Caritas Co-ordinator’s Role

The role of the Caritas Co-ordinator is vital to the successful implementation of the award.  (S)he is required to bring a commitment to the overall aims of the Caritas Award to help young people to commit their talents to the loving service of others and to do so through engagement with their local faith community.

Ideally the co-ordinator will be able to work with a school chaplain and a larger team of colleagues who will also support the candidates at various points on their Caritas journey.  This may lead to a sharing of reponsibilities for various tasks, such as liaising with parishes, organising the gathering points, monitoring log-books, gathering assessment evidence etc.
