The National School Chaplaincy Association (NSCA) is a network of Christian chaplaincy organisations in Australia.It is represented by ACCESS Ministries (Vic), Generate Ministries (NSW), Schools Ministry Group (SA), YouthCARE (WA) and Scripture Union (ACT, Queensland, Tasmania).
As one of society’s key institutions, schools are in a strong position to support the wellbeing, values and spirituality of young people. For decades now, chaplains have been playing a significant role in supporting schools throughout Australia.
Chaplaincy supports young people in one of the most complex environments in our society — the school. Today, there are over 1,650 state schools with NSCA chaplains across the country. These chaplains provide a safe and supportive influence.
