Resources

The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) is the largest non-government provider of community services in Australia. We achieve this through our community services arm, Uniting. This is an umbrella of more than 400 agencies, institutions, and parish missions throughout Australia. Areas of service include aged care, children, youth and family, disability, employment, emergency relief, drug and alcohol, youth homelessness and suicide.

The UCA is also prominent in social justice advocacy.  Issues addressed include the environment, the rights and dignity of asylum seekers, the treatment and care of prisoners, inadequate gambling legislation, religious intolerance, multi- and cross-cultural issues, fair employment practices and much more. A key component of our justice work is the UCA’s efforts to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians together and to support the Indigenous community generally. Reconciliation, land rights and Indigenous leadership training are just some of the activities in which we are engaged.

Our social justice and community services work is the UCA’s response to the Bible’s call to care for and protect the marginalised and the vulnerable.

Below are links to some of the agencies and missions that operate within the area in which we are situated.
