AnglicareSA has its origins in Anglican Church-based charities going back more than 150 years. While it retains strong links with the Anglican Church, Anglicare SA Inc was incorporated in 2000 and it operates independently with its own management structure and its own Board of Directors.
AnglicareSA is a member of Anglicare Australia and has a close association with Anglicare organisations in each state.
Our statement of purpose says that Anglicare SA, on behalf of the Anglican Church, expresses God’s love for individuals, families and communities by:
- Making a positive difference to quality of life
- Responding to needs and issues in ways which enhance and protect dignity and integrity
- Promoting social justice
We have more than 1500 staff and more than 900 volunteers who work in a wide range of roles at more than 30 major sites across metropolitan Adelaide.
Through the talent and commitment of our staff and volunteers we make a positive difference to the lives of nearly 50,000 elderly, vulnerable and disadvantaged people every year.
