National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP) 2020 - 2022
The NSCP is an initiative funded by the Commonwealth Government to provide chaplaincy services in schools throughout Australia. The purpose of the NSCP is to support the wellbeing of Australian school students through the provision of pastoral care services and strategies to support the wellbeing of the broader school community. These may include volunteering activities, breakfast clubs, excursions, lunchtime activities and parent/carer workshops.
CSNSW is the sector authority responsible for assessing applications, managing, and allocating funding. The program is voluntary for all schools and students.
Applications for the 2020-2022 round of funding closed in Term 3, 2019.
Schools approved to participate in the 2020-2022 program have received notification. A list of participating schools can be found here.
CSNSW acknowledges and recognises the role of the Commonwealth and NSW Governments in supporting this wellbeing initiative.
