Starting out in Healthcare Chaplaincy Course

For the last four years, the Network has been supporting the development of pathways for volunteers into NHS Pastoral, Spiritual, and Religious Care services through our 'Starting Out in Healthcare Chaplaincy' course (course details below). In 2017, we were commissioned to carry out an impact evaluation of our course, the full report can be found here.

Our ‘Starting Out in Healthcare Chaplaincy' course has supported the growth and development of nearly 150 new high quality volunteers from a range of religion and belief backgrounds, several of whom have gone on to secure paid positions in chaplaincy.

Sadly, from April 2019 NHS England will no longer be funding this programme, but we will continue to seek funding from additional sources and we will be arranging new courses as soon as possible. Check back here soon or sign up to our mailing list for updates.
