Volunteers from a wide range of cultural and faith backgrounds work with spiritual care professionals to provide spiritual care in health services. Spiritual Health Victoria (SHV) has a Spiritual Care Volunteer Training Program for hospital pastoral care departments, faith communities, and health professionals. This program enables the provision of quality spiritual care through the training and development of volunteers.

The cost of our Spiritual Care Volunteer Training Program is $220 (GST), which will include:

  1. One hard copy of the Training manual
  2. Two attendees at our Volunteer Training of the Trainers

The next Volunteer Training of the Trainers will be Thursday, 7th September, 2017.

If you do not have any trained facilitators, SHV can also support you in training your spiritual care volunteers directly, using our Training Program.  This will cost $470 (GST included), plus any travel and accommodation costs as relevant.

Call us on (03) 8415 1144 for more information or to discuss your interest in training volunteers, or email our Education Officer Shinen Wong
