What is a chaplain?
• A person who interacts with people for their emotional and spiritual well being.
• A person who offers confidential, non-judgmental support about all aspects of life and work.
• Chaplains are motivated by the Christian faith from which they come to care for people and communities. They are not there to preach but to offer care and comfort, and a listening ear.

How does chaplaincy work?
• A chaplain’s visits are organised with the agreement of the staff and management.
• A chaplain remains independent of the company or business he or she visits.
• A chaplain, as a representative of the local churches, acts as a bridge builder with the company or business.
• The chaplaincy is not a formal counselling service and should be regarded as complementing existing provision and services.
• The chaplaincy service is open to all without discrimination and is confidential.

If you are interested in having a chaplain at your place of work, contact Rev. Paul Morris onpaul@derbyccc.org.uk
