Pastoral Care

The Salvation Army Education and Employment staff, Learners & Trainees are supported by Chaplains who are drawn from The Salvation Army Corps (Church) and have requisite qualifications for their roles as ordained or lay Ministers.

Most importantly Chaplains bring a critical set of relational skills for mentoring and supporting participants & staff. It is through this chaplaincy approach that staff are assisted to access the holistic support network available through the wider Salvation Army services.
