The Street Chaplains belong to “Western Urban Associates (WA)” which is a fully incorporated not-for-profit association of Christian people who have come together from all mainline churches to answer God’s call to be ‘Good Samaritans’.
Street Chaplains are compassionate male and females, who are First Aid trained. They understand the streets well and work alongside a range of other service providers such as the Police, Ambo’s, CCTV and Indigenous services.
All our Street Chaplains are accredited at the end of careful training and hold a contract for voluntary service.
A Street Chaplain’s goal is to help people in need by showing compassion through acts of kindness. The opportunities to do so on the streets are endless.
Some of the equipment they carry includes water bottles, a comprehensive first aid kit, vomit bags, hand wipes, blankets/sarongs and “flip-flops”/thongs etc.
