The Salvation Army's network of Christian chaplains work to support people around Australia who need a helping hand.

Our chaplains meet people at their point of need to provide support. It can be anything from a chat about how things are going, to helping people through the death of a loved one.

They are committed to helping in any way they can, offering the highest level of professional confidentiality, no matter what your beliefs are. But if you are interested, they are happy to answer questions about God, faith, and spirituality.

Our chaplains can provide support in:

  • Schools
  • Emergency services (police, fire brigade, etc)
  • Prisons
  • Rural areas

If you would like a chaplain to attend your workplace, please contact your management team to place a request with our chaplaincy team.

If you would like someone to visit you personally, please contact your local Salvation Army church.
