Hindu HealthCare Chaplains

 

Although the Hindu community, totalling about 600,000, is settled all over England, it is concentrated in large numbers in some health authority areas.

There is a disproportionately small number of Hindu chaplains serving the religious, spiritual and emotional needs of Hindu patients.  This hugely significant but largely unnoticed Hindu chaplaincy work, which is carried out mainly on a voluntary basis, is totally uncoordinated at the local, regional and at the national level. Regularly the temples are contacted by Hospital trusts for the need of Hindu chaplains, which the temples are unable to provide because of the nonexistent information on Hindu Healthcare Chaplains.

This vital project will identify and co-ordinate the Hindu Healthcare Chaplains so as to effectively deliver their services to the needy patients thereby fulfilling the religious, spiritual and emotional needs of Hindu patients.


Aims

a)To identify more Hindu Healthcare Chaplains,
b) Co-ordinate their efforts,
c) Establish a formal body of Hindu Healthcare Chaplains, which will take the responsibility of accreditation,
d) Compile a Directory of Hindu Chaplaincy,
e) Encourage more individuals to become Healthcare Chaplains,
f) Produce guidelines on Hindu Healthcare Chaplaincy,
g) Initiate training procedures for Healthcare Chaplains.

All the above points will greatly assist the Hospital trusts and Health authorities in catering for the needs of the Hindu patients in an organised and professional manner.


Benefits

This funding will, for the first time, directly bring benefits both to the patients and the Health authorities by developing partnerships between Hindu chaplains and the Health authorities so the patients needs are taken care of. Generally, the Hindu patients have, up to now, not received adequate religious, spiritual and emotional care they require as the families (especially the young generation) of patients have little information on providing these needs. At the same time the Health authorities also generally have little information on Hindu chaplains in their local areas.


Training Summary

This project will identify and coordinate Hindu Healthcare Chaplains, which will eventually lead to the formation of a Hindu Healthcare Chaplaincy Group (HHCG). The HHCG will take responsibility for liaising with the Hospital trusts, training and accrediting the Hindu Healthcare Chaplains. This will be covered in much greater detail on the Training Course, a summary of which is as below.
