Our Values

Jesus sees everyone’s value. So do we.

The world often tells us how to see people – those who are valuable and those who are not. But at Anglicare we take a different view.
Our belief in Jesus means we believe in hope. We believe in community. We believe everyone belongs.  
Whether you’re young, or old, new to Australia or part of a famous family, we believe you have infinite value. Not because of your talents, wealth or amazing personality. But simply because you are made in the image of God. Jesus sees you as being valuable. And so do we.
It’s this recognition of each person’s value that motivates us to design communities, services and programs to meet the varying needs of people in different circumstances and at different stages of life. 
In all that we do we hold true to our Christian motivation while responding to meet the changing needs of those we serve - people living in our villages and communities, those receiving care in their own homes and the children, families and socially isolated people we support in the wider community. 

We spoke to people about their lives and Anglicare. This is what they had to say.
