There are four Confirmation programmes in various parts of the diocese for those children unable to participate in Parish programmes. Up to the present they are located in West Green and Southall between Christmas and Easter, and Clapton Park and Acton between Easter and the Summer.  There is no provision in Hertfordshire, though if a sufficient number need preparation in a particular Parish at the request of the Parish Priest or a group of Travellers an arrangement could be made if resources allow.

Each programme consists of 10 lessons in 10 weeks. There may be some additional dates as practice sessions. If there is a sufficient number, each Confirmation ceremony takes place in the Parish where the candidates have been prepared   Traveller Children with special needs can be referred to Hendon for Sacramental preparation.
