National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP)


The National School Chaplaincy Progam (NSCP) is a Federal Government funded program which:

  • supports the emotional wellbeing of students
  • provides pastoral care services and strategies that support the emotional wellbeing of the school community.
Program funded services are designed to form part of the already existing wellbeing services provided within the school community. This initiative does not seek to diminish or replace existing careers advice, counselling services or any other wellbeing services in the school. 
Funding under this program can only be used for expenditure that directly relates to the provision of chaplaincy under the program. Chaplaincy Services operate within a strong ethical framework which supports and upholds the Values Education for Australian Schooling.
Participation in this Commonwealth-funded program is voluntary. 

Schools who received funding via NSCP 2015-2018 agreements were offered an extension for a period of one year, to expire on 31 December 2019. 2019 participating schools are listed below. The Commonwealth has now extended the program to 2022.


Schools will be advised of the outcome of their applications on 23rd September 2019.
