FIRE RECOVERY AND OUTREACH SUSPENDED
Due to the current COVID-19 emergency, all fire recovery and outreach activities have been suspended. Important social distancing laws make face to face chaplaincy deployment impossible.
COVID-19 PHONE SUPPORT
In the ACT, DRCN Chaplains are providing phone support to people providing care in emergency food relief.
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.
