UnitingCare within Victoria and Tasmania is a network of community service agencies committed to working with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities.
The network operates across metropolitan, regional and remote parts of Victoria and Tasmania offering a broad range of services and advocacy to support thousands of vulnerable people.
The network provides services including:
- emergency relief and financial counselling,
- housing and homelessness support,
- early childhood services,
- child, youth and family support,
- disability services,
- mental health and counselling services,
- non-residential aged care, and
- services for the treatment and education concerning alcohol and other drugs.
We are part of the national UnitingCare network, one of the largest providers of community services in Australia.
The network is supported by the UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania unit within the Uniting Church of Australia, Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
Changes are underway to move from a network of separate agencies to a single organisation. Uniting (Victoria and Tasmania) Limited was established and governance for all agencies was unified under a single Board on 3 October 2016.
