UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania is a strong, cohesive, innovative network of agencies. We operate across metropolitan, regional and remote parts of Victoria and Tasmania offering a broad range of services and advocacy to support thousands of vulnerable people.
These services include emergency relief, financial counselling, housing and homelessness services, employment services, early childhood services, child, youth and family services, disability services, mental health services, non-residential aged care and alcohol and other drugs services and Lifeline.
The UnitingCare network works closely with other parts of the Uniting Church active in the community services sector including Uniting AgeWell, Uniting Housing, Wesley Mission Victoria and UnitingCare Australia.
Your support for the SHARE community appeal funds critical parts of the work of UnitingCare enabling people to transform their situation, guided by compassion, equity and dignity.
A new vision for UnitingCare
Later this year a new organisation will be formed from the merger of 20 UnitingCare agencies and Wesley Mission Victoria (WMV). It will be one of the largest community service providers operating in Victoria and Tasmania with a combined annual budget of about $237 million, over 3,500 staff and 4000 volunteers.
A new agency board has been appointed and will assume its governance functions by the end of the year.
Experienced public sector and community services professional Paul Linossier has been appointed as the inaugural Chief Executive Officer. Mr Linossier, currently the CEO of WMV, has more than three decades experience in leading organisational change and systems reform while maintaining a strong commitment to marginalised and vulnerable people.
