School Chaplaincy Program

2019-2022 In School State Funded Chaplaincy Program (ISSFCP) 

The In School State Funded Chaplaincy Program (ISSFCP) 2019-2022 is a State Government funded initiative to assist in the support of the emotional wellbeing of students by providing funding for In School Chaplaincy services.  This program was developed in response to increased demand from Western Australian public schools.

At the October 2018 cross sector meeting, the panel determined that to ensure continuity of service for schools while new agreements are finalised, the same public schools that received funding in 2018 (through either the National School Chaplaincy Programme or the In School State Funded Chaplaincy Program) will be given the option to continue to receive funding for the 2019 school year.  These schools can be viewed by clicking on the below links.

All schools will be invited to apply for these services through a new selection process in 2019 for the following three years 2020-2022.
