National Student Wellbeing Program

Formerly National Schools Chaplaincy Program

The National Student Wellbeing Program (NSWP), which replaces the former National Schools Chaplaincy Program, is an initiative funded by the Commonwealth Government to support the wellbeing of Australian school students through chaplaincy and/or student wellbeing services.

NSWP funds can be spent on the provision of pastoral care services (including wages for chaplain, wellbeing officer or equivalent) and strategies that support the wellbeing of the broader school community. These may include volunteering activities, breakfast clubs, excursions, lunchtime activities and parent/carer workshops.
