Run by the Salesians of Don Bosco in Great Britain, catholicyouthwork.com has a huge wealth of resources to be found through its website – everything from youth programmes, resource packs and PowerPoints to quotes, videos and music. There’s even an app for games ideas on there!
It’s always worth keeping an eye on the CAFOD website for resources relating to their current campaigns.
The YCW website has a range of books and resource packs to purchase from their shop, as well as free downloadable guidance for running a group.

Film & Media Resources
If you’re using films and media for your youth group sharing times, it might be worth exploring Wing Clips, where you can find film clips on virtually every subject by theme, category or Scripture.
