School Chaplaincy Program

Process for the Appointment of In School Chaplains

The Department has extended three Service Agreements with onPsych Chaplaincy, Scripture Union WA and YouthCARE to enable schools to purchase chaplaincy services.  These Service Agreements enable schools to purchase services without having to conduct their own full procurement process.

School Principals should refer to the Buyers Guide for school chaplaincy services at Western Australian public schools 2020 to ensure adherence to all requirements.

Schools will also need to complete a Customer Order Form (refer to the Buyers Guide) and submit it to the Service Provider. 

If your school currently receives the services of a Support Chaplain from YouthCARE you do not need to complete a Customer Order Form.
