Joondalup Street Chaplains are volunteers who are out and about in Joondalup to make our streets safer late at night. We liaise with Police as well as security staff at licenced premises, City of Joondalup and Lakeside Joondalup to assist patrons get home safely after a big night out. This assistance may include providing water and first aid to intoxicated people, mediation in a conflict, or guidance to find a safe means home. At other times, chaplains simply provide a listening ear when someone needs to talk it through and calm down.
Every chaplain has a First Aid Certificate and a Working with Children Card. Their training also covers alcohol and drug awareness, conflict management, mental health awareness, and liaison with emergency services and other agencies. The busiest time in Joondalup is Friday night, so between the hours of 10pm and 2am, when you see a street chaplain come over and say hello. You’ll most likely find us somewhere between the Sovereign Arms, Arcade Nightclub and Kosmos Kebabs or along Central Walk.
