What we do
UnitingCare NSW.ACT is the Board of the NSW and ACT Synod of the Uniting Church responsible for the work of community services, chaplaincy, social justice and advocacy.
All our work is inspired and guided by the principles of justice and compassion.
Our services cater for all stages of life, including quality early childhood education and care; services for vulnerable families, children and young people; disability programs and aged care.
These services are delivered through two Service Groups:
- UnitingCare Ageing, and
- UnitingCare Children, Young People and Families (which includes UnitingCare Burnside, UnitingCare Unifam, UnitingCare Institute of Family Practice, UnitingCare Disability and UnitingCare Children’s Services).
UnitingCare NSW.ACT also manages the Medically Supervised Injecting Centre.
As well as the provision of these services, we demonstrate a strong commitment to social justice advocacy by publicly speaking out on issues that aﬀect the people we serve. This is reﬂected in our social justice charter.
UnitingCare NSW.ACT is part of the national UnitingCare Australia network of community service organisations and continually seeks to address injustice, work to overcome disadvantage and develop initiatives to strengthen and connect communities.
