Anglicare Australia is a peak social advocacy organisation that brings together over 40 individual member agencies from around Australia. We are joined by our associate members in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Singapore. Each of these members is an independent organisation choosing to come together as a part of the national network matching local presence with national strengths.
Anglicare Australia advocates at a national level on behalf of those individuals and families who access the services provided by the network members in a bid to change the system for the better and to help politicians understand that without this change, life for people living on the edge of our society may never improve.
Anglicare agencies work in close cooperation with other community organisations and some receive funding from federal, state and local governments to provide a wide range of services including:
residential and community aged care
foster care, Out-of-Home Care, adoption and child care
family relationship support programs
support for people with disabilities
financial counselling and low/no interest loans
family support and relationship counselling
treatment for drug and alcohol dependence
community housing and emergency accommodation for homeless people
community development through building communities of hope
