A new body has been formed to bring together the leaders of state and territory-based volunteer disaster recovery and emergency chaplaincy networks from across Australia.  The Australian Volunteer Emergency Chaplaincy Alliance (AVECA) was formed through the interaction of the leaders over a period of years. In 2018 this group was formalised as a network of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA).  AVECA's purpose is to connect the leaders of state and territory disaster recovery networks, connect with governments, ecumenical councils and other groups in relation to the work of disaster recovery and emergency chaplaincy response in Australia.  For more information click here
