President’s Letter
The latest missive from Karen is now available here. Please do read and take note!

The Chaplaincy Forum for Pastoral, Spiritual and Religious Care in Health is seeking expressions of interest from suitable individuals willing to be considered as our next Independent Chair from Jan 2019 to Jan 2021.

The Chaplaincy Forum was formed in 2018 to replace the Chaplaincy Leadership Forum and enables key chaplaincy groups and NHS England to work together and communicate effectively.

Face-to-face meetings are held quarterly with monthly teleconferences in between as required. The Chair ensures these run smoothly with good communication between meetings.

The independent chair will have three key strengths
1) a working knowledge of health care chaplaincy
2) a clear ability to chair meetings
3) an ability to foster collaborative working

If you think you may be right for this role, and wish to discuss further- please contact the current Independent Chair sarah.sewell@nhs.net who can offer more insight.

Formal expressions of interest, with a brief biography and setting out what you would bring to the role (evidence that you have these three key strengths) need to be received by thandar.tun@freechurches.org.uk before September 1st 2018. First meeting will be Mid October 2018.

Reasonable travel expenses will be covered.
