Nine people remain in hospital a week after a deadly bus crash in the New South Wales Hunter Valley, which claimed the lives of 10 people. 

The tragedy, which is Australia’s worst road accident in about three decades, has sent shock waves across the country. In the days following the crash, the Hunter Valley community was still trying to process the loss. 

Hit particularly hard is the town of Singleton, home to about 25,000 people, where a number of those who died had lived.

Chaplains are providing pastoral care at crisis centres set up in Singleton and Branxton.

David Riethmuller from the Disaster Recovery Chaplaincy Network speaks about this tragedy and how it has impacted the community.
