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.
Yarnin up is an Aboriginal advisory group which helps to guide Anglicare’s relationship with the Aboriginal community.
The group meets with our CEO regularly and has shared advice about cultural awareness training, employing Aboriginal people, protocols for Acknowledging Country, and how to make our services easily accessible, cultural appropriate and effective for Aboriginal people.
