Parish Partnerships

Across the state, Anglicare Victoria is working in partnership with Anglican parishes and the community to address local community needs.

These partnerships are based on the understanding that together, we have a shared responsibility to care for people in need.

Emergency Relief (ER) and Material Aid

Parish churches across all dioceses, both suburban and country, are involved in providing emergency support to all people seeking help. You can see our locations and opening times here.

Homeless Support

Homeless Support Services provide relief and support to people throughout Victoria. Programs include Community meals, laundry and shower facilities and drop in recreation activities.

Community Programs and Activities

Our Parish Partnerships facilitate a broad range of initiatives that strengthen communities.  These include No Interest Loan Schemes, Refugee families and New Immigrant Support, homework clubs and tutoring and fundraising events throughout the year.
