Who we are

The UnitingCare Australia network is one of the largest networks of social services providers in Australia, supporting 1.4 million people every year across urban, rural and remote communities.

The UnitingCare network is powered by over 50,000 staff and 30,000 volunteers, and we have proudly been there for all Australians for more than 100 years. Together, we believe that everyone should live life to its fullest and with dignity, no matter their circumstances. We’re innovative, ambitious and passionate about inspiring a better world.

UnitingCare Australia is a national advocate for social justice, working across party lines to give a voice to the most vulnerable in our community. Our insights into social justice are informed by the UnitingCare network of community service providers and the experience of those people who use those services.

We maintain bipartisan working relationships across all political parties and with key politicians, public servants and thought leaders at the national level. Within this environment, UnitingCare offers expertise, credibility, independence and integrity.
