EVERY Saturday night, chaplains are out on the streets of Mandurah.

Street Chaplains director Karen Jarvis said volunteers help and support people where they can.

Chaplains are there to greet people and have a chat. They also deal with those who might be suicidal, have had their drinks spiked, are intoxicated or need to get home safely.

Chaplains wear a purple shirt, yellow hats, and blue and yellow jackets.

“The wellbeing of everyone is our goal,” Ms Jarvis said.

“We are there to help.

“We have 220 volunteers all up that cover 13 regions. In Mandurah we have 13 volunteers, with 11 on the roster.”

Mandurah Street Chaplains is seeking volunteers to increase the service to Friday nights. Volunteers are fully trained, with first aid training and police clearances.

A movie fundraiser is being held to help facilitate a shift on Friday nights.
