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.

The Fitness Passport program allows eligible employees and their immediate family members (partner and/or children) a greatly discounted membership to gyms, fitness facilities and aquatic centres across NSW. In our current COVID-19 environment, unfortunately all gyms and pools are closed, but once these restrictions are eased, the Fitness Passport Program will be up and running again for you to access facilities.
