The community can expect that:
- Community Chaplains will serve all members of their community, of all faiths and none.
- Provide confidential pastoral support in accordance with our Confidentiality Policy.
- Respond adequately to questions concerning beliefs, spirituality and ethics.
- Provide practical social support with regard to equal opportunities and in accordance with our equal opportunities statement.
- Community Chaplains will not encourage division or discord, disunity or lack of respect, or operate for the unwanted purposes of proselytization. Further detail of this expectation is explored in our policies on Interfaith Matters and Proselytization.
- The Charity recognises, however, that people of faith will want to share their faith with others and that the processes of engagement and dialogue might lead some people to faith and others from one faith to another.
- Community Chaplains will not promote any agenda contrary to the Charity’s values, policies or regulations.
