Anglicare Victoria works with children, young people and families. We prevent harm and empower people to overcome challenges and achieve their full potential.
We believe in families and know that with access to the right support every family can grow and achieve their goals.
We work with families towards positive change. Whether it be a helping hand in a time of crisis, or providing longer-term support and care. We partner with local communities, the private and public sectors and our donors to deliver better results.
Supporting tens of thousands of Victorians every year, our 1700+ staff and volunteers operate from more than 45 sites across the state, as well as delivering assistance online, at home and in the community. We are Victoria’s largest provider of Out of Home Care and Family Services, and one of Australia’s most innovative agencies in working with vulnerable children youth and families.
We are an inclusive, safe and responsive organisation which celebrates diversity and actively supports inclusion for people from LGBTQIA+ 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.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live. We recognise their continuing connection to country and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
Anglicare Victoria respects our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and diversity. We recognise the impact of past and current injustices. We value, celebrate and learn from Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander culture and traditions, and we listen with joy and humility.
Anglicare Victoria’s Strategic Agenda has been developed in broad consultation with government, our related sectors and our staff. It is designed to be a simple, clear motivating force for the organisation – setting out our shared goals and direction for the next four years.
Over the last four years we have strengthened our service profile and demonstrated to our clients and the community that we are a diverse, inclusive organisation founded on respect. Through innovative new models, a greater focus on results and ongoing roll-out of evidence informed programs we have shown that our sector can deliver better outcomes than many thought possible four years ago. We are excited to continue that journey, as outlined in this Strategic Agenda.
As a child-safe organisation Anglicare Victoria is committed to supporting and providing environments where children and young people are respected, their voices are heard, their rights are upheld and their safety is paramount.
