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 recognises 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.

That’s why we are working towards obtaining Rainbow Tick accreditation during 2018 and 2019.

Obtaining Rainbow Tick accreditation will formalise our ongoing commitment to sexual and gender diverse (SAGD) community members by ensuring that Anglicare Victoria and the services it offers, are inclusive for all.

As a faith-based organisation, our public support of inclusion, diversity and equality is an important expression of our values and role in the community.

This has been reflected in our support for the ‘yes’ vote in the 2017 same sex marriage postal survey and our support of same sex adoption laws in 2015.
