Aimed at people at the early stage of their faith journey

The aim of Anna Chaplaincy for Older People is to improve the spiritual lives of older people in the UK by increasing provision of spiritual care services for older people, raising awareness of older people’s spiritual needs and improving the skills, knowledge and confidence within communities in addressing these needs. Anna Chaplains can be lay or ordained; work in care homes, private homes, churches and community settings with people of strong, little or no faith; and are appointed or recognised by their local church or Churches Together group.
