UnitingCare Community supports vulnerable people and communities that are disadvantaged in some way.
UnitingCare Community supports vulnerable people and communities that are disadvantaged in some way – supporting people with a disability to lead meaningful lives, working with children and families to keep them safe and supporting people who are in crisis.
Its range of services touch many lives, providing Lifeline services such as 24-hour telephone crisis support – 13 11 14 - suicide intervention and community recovery, as well as family relationships and mediation, counselling, domestic violence support, disability support, out-of-home care and other intensive family support.
Every year UnitingCare Community’s 6 000 volunteers contribute almost 700 000 hours of time to the organisation – equivalent to more than $16.7 million dollars in wages.
