Victoria is the most religiously and culturally diverse state in Australia.
It is important to recognise that in some communities faith and culture are inextricably linked. To respond culturally but not religiously can be disrespectful. In times of crisis, many people rely on their faith and culture to support their emotional, psychological and spiritual recovery. The VCC Emergencies Ministry responds to assist affected people regardless of race, culture or religion.
Volunteers are currently being recruited from the following major religions:
- Aboriginal and Maori spirituality
Our volunteers never try to convert people to their religion.

Volunteers must meet the following requirements:
- Volunteers must be nominated by a church, mosque, synagogue or temple from one of the religions listed above
- Volunteers must successfully complete the VCC EM training
