What is a Chaplain?
A Chaplain is a spiritual representative within and organisation or institution. Here at WCF, we have a Full-Time Chaplain who supports our children, young people and their through Christ-centred care with a therapeutic approach.
Chaplaincy support is versatile, fluid and ever-evolving. Everyday practice is very practical and can include:
WCF SWAG (Strength, Wellbeing and Growth) Camps
Christian Living and Scripture
Life Story Work
Leaving Care/Life Skills Development Support
We acknowledge the legal requirement to support the spiritual development of children, young people, and their families, as well as supporting children's rights to practice their religion in conditions of freedom and dignity.

Chaplaincy for Families and Carers
Our Chaplain is available as emotional and spiritual support to families and carers. We understand that changes to a family unity can be challenging and extra support is sometimes needed.
Our Chaplain is primarily responsible for supporting our Volunteers who put their hand up to help support children and young people. If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer, please click here.
