In what is believed to be a first for the care sector, Methodist Homes (MHA) has appointed a digital chaplain.
The new role, filled by Eleanor Puttock, aims to add to MHA’s portfolio of online services. The role will support existing chaplaincy services, and reach audiences further afield.
The role is funded through charitable giving. Puttock comes from the Diocese of Ely, where she supported the central team, clergy and parish churches to develop and sustain their digital presence and outreach. She will shortly complete her training to become a hospital chaplain.
