Watch a short video from our Senior Chaplain.

Ambulance Chaplains are part of a holistic support team that provides nonjudgmental support to Ambulance staff and their families. We can assist you to navigate feelings of loss and grief, personal challenges and issues within the family. Chaplains can also provide spiritual guidance or help to access other faith based care or welfare services and may be requested for a baptism, wedding, funeral or other ceremony.
