Bridge Pastoral Foundation

BPF is a network of around 200 members and authorised tutors spread across the UK who are committed to exploring the frontiers of pastoral care and counselling. Our members are people who care about the development of human relationships and pastoral care, and many work in the caring professions, or have a pastoral responsibility in their church or voluntary agency.
