Chichester Anna Chaplain to Older People
Part-time, 14 hours a week £7,200 – £9,200 pa dependent on experience
The Anna Chaplaincy is a post promoting the spiritual wellbeing of older people. It is a pioneering role offering spiritual support to older people living in care homes, sheltered housing and within the community. It includes supporting relatives, friends, and care staff. The Anna Chaplain will recruit, support and sustain volunteers in this work.
The Anna Chaplain also has a wider role within the community as an advocate and champion of the contribution older people make to society. This is an opportunity to draw alongside people of all faiths and none, as well as encourage the wider church to celebrate and cherish older members of their congregations.
The applicant would be part of a growing ecumenical network of such chaplains, developing links with our national partners, the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), through the Gift of Years – “resourcing the spiritual journey of older people.”
It is an occupational requirement for the person appointed to be a professing and practising Christian (Equality Act 2010).
The role is a part-time one of 14 hours a week, times to be agreed though some flexibility will be required, increasing to 21 hours following a review of the service. Enhanced DBS and references will be required.
Chichester Anna Chaplaincy is registered 1172058 with the Charity Commission.
