A donation to Anglicare has the potential to enrich the life of a fellow Tasmanian.
It enables us to make one-off purchases for our clients that sit outside program funding or emergency relief. It also means that we can support Tasmanians experiencing hardship over winter and at Christmas time.
Below are a few recent examples of how your donations have helped vulnerable Tasmanians.
Therapy dog Amie
Therapy dog Amie joined the Anglicare team in November 2019.
The black Labrador is based at our mental health facility at Rocherlea, near Launceston.
Amie was purchased with funds raised through Anglicare’s Winter Appeal. He has an innate ability to know if someone needs a helping paw and will actively seek out someone who is feeling stressed. Read more about Amie
Jonathon, a client of our Disability Service recently purchased a record turntable using donated funds.
Jonathon is now able to share his love of music with a friend while they play and make samples with his collection of vinyl records.
This purchase is linked to the goals stated in Jonathon’s NDIS plan of social interaction, pursuing activities of interest and learning new skills. Find out more
Parish congregations around the State and Anglican schools are a source of wonderful support.
They provide money, grocery items and school supplies to Anglicare to distribute, as well as working directly with people in need in their own local communities. Find out more
