Caraway Chaplaincy Service

Caraway Chaplaincy is a free service that operates in the Southampton community in order to promote and meet the Spiritual and Well-being needs of older people. It is available to those with any faith or with none.

Speaking with a Chaplain can help older people make sense of their situation. Chaplains can comfort them, and offer practical and helpful advice. They will use a wide range of tools and resources to aid conversation, facilitate reflection and build well-being. Where appropriate, they can also pray, explore what faith means to you, and offer guidance, signposting and networking.

This service is for older people, usually aged 70 or above, who live within the Postcodes SO14-SO19. They may live independently, with family, or in Sheltered Accommodation or a Care Home. Our Caraway Chaplains travel to where they are.

Our Caraway Chaplains are experienced in spiritual, pastoral and religious care. They are leaders in a recognised faith community and are fully trained in delivering Chaplaincy. Contact with a Chaplain may be over the phone, a home visit or at a group event. Our Chaplains also visit Care Homes, sheltered accommodation and help to provide community events.

Service access criteria: Usually age 70+, Living within Postcodes SO14-19
