New research by the University of Western Australia reveals the presence of a chaplain in a school setting can improve a young person’s sense of safety, provision of material needs, overall health, learning, participation, culture and identity.
Chaplains work as part of their school’s wellbeing team and also in partnership with community networks of support.
In the report respondents confirmed that chaplains had made a positive impact in the following areas:
· Being loved and safe 87%
· Having material basics 76%
· Being healthy 78%
· Learning 69%
· Participating 81%
· Positive sense of culture and identity 75%.
