About Us

Anglicare Victoria exists to create a more just society by expressing God’s love through service, education and advocacy.

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.

We exist 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. We protect over 80,000 Victorians all across the state, each and every year.

Ending disadvantage, for enduring benefits

With a range of direct services, we help people to overcome their immediate crises.

These services include foster care, emergency relief, food and material aid, crisis accommodation, care for children with disabilities, assistance for victims of abuse, violence and neglect, and short-term housing.

We’re also dedicated to empowering and educating Victorians, to provide them with access to brighter futures and better tomorrows.

We offer hope for a long-term solution to problems, through comprehensive support and counselling initiatives. Our focus on long-term benefits includes family and financial counselling, parenting advice and support, training programs, assistance with addiction, and advocacy.

We believe in and respect the value of all people, irrespective of their individual circumstances or beliefs.

Everything we do is done to prevent, protect and empower disadvantaged Victorian children, young people and families.

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.

Our vision is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to meet their greatest potential in family and community. We will do this by approaching our practice in a culturally sensitive manner that is empowering and promotes self-determination
