About Us

ChaplainWatch is an independent Brisbane based charity, focused on public safety in public spaces.

Since 2004, every Thusday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from 11pm til early morning, the NightWatch Chaplains pro-actively patrol the CBD, Fortitude Valley and Caxton Street precincts, watching out for anyone in crisis, at risk or in need.

ChaplainWatch offers a unique, non-authoritarian service, which encompasses crisis intervention, conflict resolution, front-line first aid, public counseling and guidance, secondary victim support and welfare assistance. This rapid response service works in partnership with other official services - Police, Ambulance, City Council, venue management and security, taxi operations and other city stakeholders.

What motivates the ChaplainWatch Chaplains?

When people are out at night, someone, somewhere, will find themselves in trouble.

They may be:

  • young or old
  • male or female

They will be:

  • someone's daughter or son
  • someone's friend or lover

The Chaplains are trusted, compassionate and responsive to the needs of all who frequent the Brisbane Entertainment precinct, without prejudice. They are there to save lives and help make the streets a safer place for all of us to enjoy.
