Samaritans Chaplain offers pastoral and spiritual care to staff, volunteers, people we support and the broader community connected to our organisation. This is available to all people regardless of faith or cultural background.

The Chaplain’s role is also an important community connector, working with local parishes as well as other Anglican chaplains in the health, justice and aged care sectors. Through spiritual guidance the Chaplain aims to enrich the potential outcomes of the delivery of social justice through Samaritans services in the Diocese of Newcastle.
