Your donation will make a difference for local people experiencing hardship.
Hope is a cornerstone of Anglicare’s guiding values. It sustains us in testing times. Hope gives us confidence that in every situation, we can contribute by extending care to others and working together for the common good. Hope equips us to move forward with purpose, and plan for the future. It brings a sense of peace, even in times of trouble.
Hope strengthens us to reach out and provide support to those around us. This includes older Tasmanians experiencing disconnection and loneliness, and children and young people struggling to make sense of the changes that have disrupted their lives. It includes families of all shapes and sizes, some of whom may not have needed assistance before.
Give HOPE today!
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.
Our employees play an important role in identifying individuals and groups who require special assistance.
We’d like to share a few recent examples with you:
A young person with a disability is pursuing his goal of learning to drive, thanks to the generosity of Anglicare supporters. No-one in his family has a car or holds a drivers license. This donation will enable him to attending driving school. It will increase his skills and his overall sense of agency, and support his participation in further education and employment opportunities.
A client’s motor skills, independence and pride are being developed through participation in a series of woodworking workshops.
We purchased a specialised trampoline for a client’s home when we became aware that a trampoline at school was demonstrating sensory benefits.
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.
Parish congregations around the State and Anglican schools are a source of wonderful support.
They provide money and grocery items to Anglicare to distribute, as well as working directly with people in need in their own local communities.
