About Anglicare WA
AnglicareWA is a not for profit community service organisation. We support people, families and their communities to cope with the challenges of life by building their resilience and capacity. We assist people with relationship issues, financial problems, and housing difficulties. Ultimately, we want our clients to thrive in today’s society.
We work with people from all walks of life – from Kununurra in the north to Albany in the south, from street corners to the halls of Parliament. We seek to influence policy makers and are widely respected for our expertise, leadership and capacity to drive positive and lasting change.
Our philosophy is to support people through each stage of life’s journey. Our services are available to all members of the community and our work is achieved in a spirit of reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Western Australians.
Resilient relationships help us to get the best out of life. At Anglicare WA we provide a wide range of relationship services to families, couples and individuals. We help people to manage disputes, deal with family violence, and cope with separation. We provide foster care to children and young people who are unable to live with their families. We offer sexual assault counselling and support for those who have lost loved ones to suicide, and help people with disabilities live their lives to the fullest. We put our children first and make sure their needs are addressed as lives and relationships change.
Dealing with the daily cost of living can be a struggle. An unexpected bill or the loss of a job can put enormous pressure on people’s finances. At Anglicare WA we help people develop the financial management and budgeting skills needed to manage household expenses. We provide food relief and basic essentials for families in crisis. We provide affordable clothing and household items through our Op Shops and help with education costs through matched savings plans.
A roof provides more than just shelter. A stable home lets us get on with our lives. At Anglicare WA we provide a range of housing support services. We help people to maintain their tenancies, and provide support to the homeless. We work alongside Department of Housing clients whose tenancies are at risk and provide transitional accommodation to victims of domestic violence.
At Anglicare WA we connect young people to the services they need to cope with life’s challenges. We work with street-present young people, providing information, support, accommodation and counselling to the homeless and those at risk of being homeless. We encourage participation in education, learning and employment to foster independent living skills. We support young parents to develop the skills needed to help meet the needs of their children.
We help people to connect with their communities and work together to make them the best places they can be. We provide activities for children and families in parks, work alongside Aboriginal communities to develop their capabilities, and challenge, empower and support people to create positive change in their community.
To ensure that we provide the best level of service to the community, we provide the best level of training to our staff and to the wider community sector. Our training courses, in areas such as family dispute resolution and children’s contact services, are nationally recognised. We provide a range of professional development programs designed to enhance the skills of employees and provide opportunities for career development in a wide range of industries.
