Our NELFT Chaplaincy Service supports Service Users, their Families and Staff with spiritual, religious and pastoral care primarily in our inpatient units at Goodmayes, Whipps Cross, Chingford, Thurrock, Brentwood and Tonbridge.

We are a multi-faith team with varied experience and are assisted by a team of local faith leaders and volunteers. We regularly visit the wards, hold weekly services, provide religious rituals and prayer support, run groups, provide one to ones and advise on cultural/religious needs.

We are involved in the leadership of the Trust and promote compassion, person-centeredness, equality and recovery to be at the heart of the healthcare provided, and our team is managed by the Chief Nurse and the Patient Experience team alongside Volunteering and Service User Involvement.
