School Chaplaincy ACT chaplains provide social, emotional and spiritual support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety. They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis, and those who just need a friend. They also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.
You Can Help
The Federally funded National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) has been a great help, and it is important to note that the NSCP program is only meant to be a contribution towards the costs of a chaplaincy service. To ensure local chaplaincy services remain sustainable, local community support is vital. School Chaplaincy ACT supports the initiative by appointing, training, and equipping school chaplains. Your support can help keep chappies in schools and continue to bring hope to a young generation.
