UnitingCare Ageing seeks to provide information and resources for the Church, congregations and the community that focus on the areas of our work and contribute to our advocacy for social justice.
Underpinning all community service activities of the Uniting Church is its strong commitment to social justice and advocacy. This is reflected in the statement from the inaugural worship service for the Uniting Church in 1977, which exhorted Church members "to engage in a fearless prophetic ministry in relation to social evils which deny God's will for justice and peace (and) to act with God alongside the oppressed, the hurt, the poor".
We speak out on behalf of people who do not always have a public voice through submissions, delegations to government policy makers and through the media.
A range of resources are produced to assist in this work and can be found in this section:
- UnitingCare Media Centre
- UnitingCare Submissions to Government
- UnitingCare Publications
- UnitingCare Ageing Regional Development Fund
