Working for a just Tasmania

We are a not-for-profit organisation providing a range of support services to the people of Tasmania.

In response to the Christian faith, Anglicare strives to achieve social justice and provide the opportunity for people in need to reach fullness of life.

We are guided in this mission by the values of compassion, hope, respect and justice.

Our first service opened in 1983 to assist people struggling with debt and low income.
