Description of charity's activities and outcomes
For over 30 years Sports Chaplaincy Australia has developed an extensive network serving sports communities as volunteers in the AFL, NRL, ARU, V8 Supercars, racing, football, lifesaving, surfing, institutes including the AIS and VIS just to name a few. Our model has been to train church members to be sports chaplains in their local area. This provides pastoral care to sporting clubs as well as linking churches to these clubs and communities. But over the past few years we have seen a disturbing trend in clubs with increasing stress from critical incidents. Clubs and sporting leagues have expressed their inability to both manage these incidents as well as provide duty of care to their members.ClubCare ACCESS is a new and innovative program in its second year of operation. Principally we want to continue the project started March 2016 to have the people in place to serve the ClubCare ACCESS members subscribe to date and to continue to expand the membership. ClubCare Access aims to provide: 1. critical incident care to local sporting clubs in crisis 2. a sustainable model for delivering sports chaplains in every sporting community in Australia.
