UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy (UKBHC) Lay Director position (voluntary role): 

UKBHC has at least one exciting volunteer opportunity for anyone who can demonstrate commitment to supporting the highest standards of safe and effective Chaplaincy/spiritual care in UK health and social care. 

Healthcare Chaplains promote pastoral, spiritual and religious well-being through skilled compassionate person-centred care. This is available to our patients, their families and carers, staff, volunteers and students.  They enable people to celebrate according to their religion or belief within NHS and other healthcare settings and support those facing tough situations such as the death of a loved one, psychosis, being diagnosed with life-threatening conditions and people who are receiving end-of-life care, as well as being alongside those who just appreciate having a listening ear or a time to chat.

The purpose of the UK Board is to safeguard the well-being of the public by ensuring that healthcare chaplains deliver the highest standards of safe and effective care.  The Board do this by supporting and promoting the work of healthcare chaplaincy through:

a) Maintaining a register of accredited healthcare chaplains, which is recognised by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA);

b) Setting standards for education and practice;

c) Giving guidance to the registrants on matters relating to their role; and

d) The provision of Professional Advisers in the filling of vacancies

The Board is currently seeking to add at least one volunteer Lay Director to our existing team.
