Chaplains regularly come across staff who are carers.
Being available to listen to those staff members provides relief and release for those staff, who as soon as they leave work take on responsibilities caring for a family member.
Chaplain care teams are a great resource for carers. Often teams are able to signpost staff to local and national resources. A chaplain can make an immediate practical difference, on one occasion linking a carer into a local authority respite care resource within 24 hours.
