Anglicare Sydney relies on the financial support of generous people to help all those who turn to us for assistance. There are specific services that are government funded, but a large number of our programs are only made possible by your donations. Your support enables us to meet the needs of the most vulnerable and at-risk members of our community.

When you look at our city and diocese, what do you make of the refugee, the single mother, the homeless man? Often we form a neat category, a generalisation, ultimately we put people in a box that we can then close the lid on and insulate ourselves from the complication and the heart cry coming from within.
