Our Advocacy

We’re working to strengthen the communities we live in.

Anglicare’s advocacy supports our vision of a more loving, just and inclusive society. We work actively with others to enable the voices of the people we support through our service delivery to be heard loud and clear, and to meaningfully inform positive social change through research, campaigns, submissions to government and other strategies. Anglicare aims to contribute to a society where all people can live their lives in fullness and hope.

Our advocacy campaigns and projects

Housing is never just a roof over our heads. The lack of safe, appropriate housing influences every element of people’s lives — their access to services, their health, safety, employment, even the nature of their relationships. It creates intergenerational disadvantage that weakens the social and economic fabric of our community.
Anglicare is working in partnership with Thread Together and St Andrews Anglican Church, Indooroopilly,  to run a new ‘mobile wardrobe’ service that provides brand-new clothing to people who are doing it tough.
A free community program that creates friendly connections through local events and sharing skills
Anglicare’s advocacy aims to actively contribute to children and young people’s access to the support and care they need, and to reduce the impact of circumstances that prevent them from flourishing.
  We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land upon which our corporate office stands – the Yuggera, Jagera and Turrbal peoples – and the Traditional Custodians of the lands where our other services, across the breadth of southern Queensland and in Townsville, stand.
