About Us

Anglicare Victoria exists to protect the vulnerable Victorians in our community – a child suffering from abuse, a homeless young person, a woman escaping domestic violence, an impoverished couple unable to feed their family – people who desperately need help.

Our vision is to resource and empower children, young people and families to achieve their full potential through the provision of quality innovative services for children and young people, supporting vulnerable families and the promotion of social justice

With a range of direct services, we help people to overcome their immediate crises, and we are dedicated to empowering and educating Victorians, to provide them with access to brighter futures and better tomorrows.

Our Vision For Reconciliation

Anglicare Victoria respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and diversity and recognizes the impact of past and current injustices.

We value, celebrate and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and traditions and we listen with humility. We work collaboratively to improve the daily life of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, families and communities, in pursuit of justice and equality.

Everyone is welcome: journey to Rainbow Tick accreditation

We want all of the young people and families we work with, our staff and volunteers to feel safe, respected and included. No matter your race, religion, gender or sexuality – everyone is welcome at Anglicare Victoria.

Anglicare Victoria has achieved  Rainbow Tick accreditation to formalise our commitment to LGBTQI communities. Welcoming, supporting and celebrating diverse talents, knowledge, perspectives and experiences strengthens our workforce and relationships with the communities we work within.

We strive to be an inclusive, safe and responsive organisation which promotes diversity and actively supports inclusion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from LGBTIQ+ communities, people with disabilities, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, people of all ages, people with caring responsibilities and people with diverse religious beliefs or affiliations.

Being a diverse and inclusive organisation goes to the very heart of our work, and supports our strategic intent to transform the future of vulnerable children and their families.
