During November and December last year, you may have received a letter or email, asking for your support for chaplains.

We needed your help to cover unexpected chaplaincy costs. Following the High Court ruling, the Federal Government made an administrative change – so, the National School Chaplaincy Programme is now funded by the Commonwealth, but delivered by the states and territories.

Although it sounds like a minor change, it actually meant that more than 800 schools had one week to re-apply for a chaplain.

We needed to raise $205,000, by the 31st of December, so we could:

  • Put in place 837 new contracts with schools who had to re-apply for funding
  • Issue 620 revised contracts to our chaplains in line with the government’s required changes to the chaplaincy programme
  • Relocate a number of chaplains to new or different schools as the government announces which schools will receive funding
  • Start recruiting and training for chaplains in newly-funded schools
