About Uniting

Who we are

Uniting works alongside people of all ages in local communities across Victoria and Tasmania. Our services reach to Albury-Wodonga in the north, Mallacoota in East Gippsland, the Wimmera region in the west, and across Tasmania.

We are the carers, thinkers, doers, darers who strive to make a difference, in everyday trials and triumphs, for everyone— just as they are.

We act with impact. We draw upon the voice deep within us and raise a collective cry that cannot be ignored. For us, enough is not enough. We want safer, fairer, brighter, better, for the people we work alongside—for all humanity.

 

 

We empower children, young people and families to learn and thrive.

 

We’re there for people experiencing homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction or mental health issues.

 

We support people with disability to live the life they choose.

 

We assist older people to maintain their independence and enjoy life.

 

We provide people with 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, age, disability, culture, language, gender identity or sexual orientation.

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 welcome lesbian, gay, trans, gender diverse and intersex (LGBTIQ) people at our services. We pledge to provide inclusive and non-discriminatory services.

We base our work on human rights that are recognised and articulated in international declarations, treaties and covenants that aim to ensure peace and equality among people.

25 organisations have come together to create Uniting. You can read about our history here.
