More Details:

The two-day Basic Training Courses are open to clergy (or equivalent) and those employed in institutional commissioned chaplaincies (such as goals, hospitals and schools).

The training is extremely helpful in understanding the nature of emergencies and disasters, how communities and people are affected by these, and practical ministry skills to assist in these circumstances. If successful, these people join the network to join an organised, government-instituted, response to emergencies to evacuation and recovery centres to provide comfort and spiritual care to disaster affected people.

About 
The Disaster Recovery Chaplaincy Network (DRCN). The DRCN is an ecumenical and multi-faith network of disaster-recovery trained clergy and ministry agents that has been responding to disasters and emergencies across NSW since 2009. This Network is incorporated in the NSW Disaster Welfare arrangements of the Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN) to provide pastoral support in evacuation and recovery centres, and into communities, following disasters and emergency events. A part of the charter of the DRCN is to support local ministry agents in the process of recovery following disasters.

Who may apply?
DRCN chaplains are ministry agents from a range of faith organisations who are ordained or
equivalent, or are employed in institutional chaplaincy (eg. Hospital, Gaol, Aged Care) and
who have the support of their denominational or faith body for involvement.

Cost?
The cost of training, travel (and accommodation if necessary) is covered by a joint Federal/State government grant.
