We co-ordinate programs that promote Buddhist values within the community. This includes our fully government-accredited Buddhist Special Religious Education (SRE) and Chaplaincy programs. Our SRE program trains and supports volunteer teachers to provide weekly Buddhist ethics classes to primary school children. These classes share beneficial Buddhist values and ethics to the younger generation.
Our Chaplaincy program trains and places chaplains into prisons and hospitals. Our chaplains interact with people who are at a critical stage in their life. They relieve suffering by providing emotional and spiritual support in a compassionate and understanding manner.
We assist State Government agencies such as the Community Relations Commission, NSW Health, Corrective Services and the Department of Education and Training. We also work with Commonwealth Government agencies such as the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
Our Member Services program provides free advice and support to our member organisations on a range of topics such as good governance, incorporation, tax and finance, technology, and fundraising, amongst other issues. We bridge gaps in information by providing our member organisations with information and timely advice.
We engage with the Buddhist community using a combination of media and promotion. This involves regularly updating our blog and sharing insightful stories through our Facebook page. We respond to queries from media organisations via email (office@localhost) or phone (02) 9966 8893..
