The Chaplains

Enrich is a Christian interdenominational chaplaincy service for ALL people with intellectual disabilities.

The chaplains are available to assist in whatever way is helpful and stay in touch by occasionally visiting residents and staff at group homes and elsewhere.

The chaplains encourage and assist churches to continue to support people with intellectual disabilities in their area by welcoming them at regular church services and at special services and by visiting them at home.

Chaplains are happy to receive enquiries or referrals to our service.

They can be called at times of crisis to support residents, family/whanau members, staff and volunteers.
