CaSS started running an annual conference in 2013. That morphed into the Joined Up Conference. For four years running, CaSS has helped to organise this conference, bringing together those working with children, youth, schools, families and chaplaincy to hear keynote speakers, take part in workshops and be inspired and equipped to continue in their ministries.
