Our Mission

The NIHCA shall exist to promote and develop the personal, vocational and professional well being of healthcare chaplains - supporting them in exercising a professionally competent and ethical ministry, and to promote public confidence in healthcare chaplaincy. Recognising the inherent dignity and worth of the human person, the Association shall seek to ensure that spirituality, faith and religion are recognised as essential dimensions of each person. The Association shall desire to see and be committed to working towards a healthcare system where the spiritual and religious needs of all are met with inclusivity, justice and equality.

Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct sets out the professional standards of conduct expected of healthcare chaplains towards those in their care. The Code is a statement of the ethical values and principles and can be read in our Downloads section.
