Disaster Recovery Chaplaincy Training
25 Aug 2015 until 26 Aug 2015
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
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 2011.
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.
A two-day intensive disaster recovery chaplaincy training course will be held in East Maitland on August 25-‐26 for ministry agents interested in applying to be a part of this network.
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 body for involvement.
The cost of training (travel and accommodation if necessary) is covered by a joint Federal/State government grant.
