School chaplain 

A school chaplain is a safe person for young people to connect with at school, providing a listening ear, caring presence and a message of hope. They can care for students struggling with a range of issues, from family problems, friendship difficulties to low self-esteem and depression. They are also there to be a 'friend' to those that may struggle with social abilities and to every member of the school.

Chaplains run positive, fun activities for young people, both in and out of school, and foster a supportive, caring school community. This includes spiritual support and direction for the whole school community.

The chaplain is supported by local churches, businesses and community organisations, and provides a network of local support and assistance. These positive relationship help young people to face issues and provide hope, connection, meaning and purpose.
