Uniting is the community services organisation of the Uniting Church in Victoria and Tasmania and has been working alongside people of all ages in local communities across Victoria and Tasmania for over 100 years. We are 7000 skilled, passionate and creative people providing over 770 programs and services.
We assist older people to maintain their independence and enjoy life via retirement communities and affordable housing. We empower children, young people and families to learn and thrive. We’re there for people experiencing homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction or living with mental illness. We support people with disability to live the life they choose. We provide opportunities to access training and meaningful employment. We’re proud to welcome and support asylum seekers to our community. We work to empower people with the information, skills and tools they need to live a healthy, happy life.
As an organisation, we celebrate our diversity and welcome all people regardless of ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as Australia’s First Peoples and as the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we work.
We are 21 UnitingCare agencies, Wesley Mission Victoria, Share and UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania Early Childhood Services, coming together to become Uniting. You may have known us as UnitingCare Harrison.
