“Crucial to our work at the chaplaincy is our confidential, non-judgmental approach. We invite anyone who wants to have a chat – whether you have a faith or not - to get
in touch. We will never start a faith discussion and you tell us what you want to talk about. So have a conversation with us – we’re here to talk.”
