This morning we celebrated a new team member joining us at CHADD.  Esther Treasure was formally licensed as our new Chaplin by the Rt Rev Graham Usher, Bishop of Dudley and our chair.  The license is issued by the Bishop of Worcester.

With the formalities over, two things happened. First the obligatory selfie and then kitting her out with a uniform…  black CHADD t-shirt with ‘chaplain’ emblazoned across the back.

Anna Gillespie, CHADD CEO, gives Esther her new uniform.


So how will Esther help us here at CHADD?

Listen below to Esther and the Bishop talking about how a chaplain can help in many ways.  It starts with listening and being available for people: staff, residents, the board indeed anyone that CHADD reaches…

Thanks to everyone who came to welcome Esther. It’s lovely to have you with us and we all look forward to getting know you.
