Ukraine Conflict Resources 

The Boys’ Brigade has launched a special set of new programme resources to support and equip children and young people to explore the current conflict in Ukraine. 

Over the last week, children and young people across the United Kingdom have been seeing images and hearing stories of war within the European continent for the first time in their lives and will understandably be worried about what is happening, may be feeling a range of emotions and have lots of questions. 

The new activities, which have been created for use with all age groups that the organisation works with (5-18 year olds) are designed to help give children and young people an opportunity to learn more about what is happening, reflect on what they are seeing on the news and a chance to think about how they can respond, including through prayer. 

Jonathan Eales, Chief Executive, commented: 

“The images we have been watching from Ukraine of children and young people fleeing their homes and hiding in underground stations are truly heart-breaking. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this conflict. As a Christian youth organisation we believe it’s incredibly important to create a space for children and young people in this country to explore and discuss what is happening, and consider what they can do to help. Indeed, as we move into the season of Lent, we should all learn, reflect and respond.” 

The BB’s programme for children and young people focuses on six activity areas – Get Active, Get Adventurous, Get Creative, Get into the Bible, Get Involved and Get Learning. 

The new programme resources focusing on Ukraine can be found at boys- brigade.org.uk/programme-news/activities-to-help-respond-to-events-in-ukraine
