Who cares for the carers? Is it possible for the families of public figures to have private lives? How does it feel to be a vicarage child in the 21st century?The authors tackle an area of enormous importance for the Church: the stresses of clerical family life, with implications which range from the nature of the appointments system and the principle of tied accommodation to the way in which the Church supports its clergy and their families. More than simply a critique of the current situation, however, this book makes some specific recommendations, thus offering a valuable resource to the Church and, potentially, well beyond it.It is an essential reading for clergy and prospective clergy and their families, but more especially for all those responsible for clergy training, appointment and welfare, and anyone with an interest in the health, wellbeing and future functioning of the Church.
