How do we set up a Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Group?
To run a Group, your Church first needs to apply to become a Kintsugi Hope Church Partner (to ensure great safeguarding and for the group to be well-supported). Once this is in place, your church can recommend as many people as they want to train to become Group Leaders and run a group.Apply Now
Group Leader Training
Once the application process is complete, Group Leaders are required to compete Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing Group training. Previously training took place over 2 days in various locations across the country. Since the COVID-19 Government regulations around Social Distancing and Public Gatherings have been in place, Kintsugi Hope have moved all Group Leader training online.
