Christmas Appeal

Every contribution makes a difference

Did you know that Anglicare has been supporting Tasmanians for 40 years?

Set up in 1983 by the Anglican Church, we began as a tiny organisation that offered a Debt Help service.

Today, we support children, families, individuals facing challenges in their lives and older Tasmanians across the entire State.

It’s clear that Tasmanians need our services more than ever.
