Going through a tough time? Just need someone to talk with? Get Help by Email, Phone or Video Call.
Over the coming months WOW will be trialling our Pocket Chaplain service. It's an on demand service designed to support workplaces and their employees through the highs and lows of life. Everyone needs someone to talk with.
We all know we bring our whole selves to work, even when we are troubled. Presentism currently costs the Australian economy $34 billion a year through lost productivity, reports show.
Pocket Chaplain is a new service for business enabling employees to connect with a professional chaplain, who will listen and offer care and support. All conversations are completely confidential. It is subscription based.
We are not a religious organisation, rather operate from a humanist perspective. Every individual is valued for who they are.
Chaplains have been providing care and support on the battlefields for centuries and now with a contemporary reframe, use the skills of presence and practical care to listen when someone just needs to talk. We all go through ups and downs in in life and connection is an important part of managing our health and wellbeing.
We provide practical care and support by email, phone or video call.
Once your employee completes the request and appointment schedule, a skilled WOW chaplain will be in touch as soon as possible.
**Chaplaincy is not counselling nor does it provide psychological services. It is a very practical service, enabling someone to talk confidentially about any matter troubling them. We listen and act as helpers. If you like, Chaplaincy is a first responder support service and offers triage support and presence, we always refer onto appropriate professional services as required.
For phone or email requests: Normally requests are answered Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 11 PM Australian Eastern Standard Time, or as soon as possible on the next business day Monday through Friday.
At this time, we can return phone calls only within Australia.
For video call requests: Normally requests are answered Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 11 PM Australian Eastern Standard Time, or as soon as possible on the next business day Monday through Friday.
