We are committed to supporting children, young people and their families through a range of ministries including school chaplaincy, camps, community-based initiatives, schools ministry, cross-cultural and at-risk youth programs. The expressions and experiences look different in each community across Australia; take a look below at the work happening across our regions.

SU chaplains have been supporting Australian school communities since 1990.
School chaplains are trained to work in the early intervention and prevention space, providing social, emotional and spiritual support for students, families and staff.
Working in primary and secondary schools, special schools and distant education schools, chaplains help young people dealing with family breakdown, bullying, mental health, friendship, peer issues and more.
