Welcome to the Winter edition of Connect.

This year we’re celebrating 40 years of serving the Tasmanian community.

Set up by the Anglican Church in our State, we started as a tiny organisation in 1983 with a part-time financial counsellor and a $25,000 grant to provide the Debt Help service.

In those early days, no-one could have envisaged the broad range of supports that today’s team delivers. There have been many changes over the years, but our mission and our values have remained constant. Anglicare’s work is done in response to God’s love.  Hear from members of our team on page 10, and read about our advocacy focus on older Tasmanians on page 9.

We have some tips for keeping your home warm (page 8), and recognise our wonderful nursing team (page 6) to mark International Nurses Day.

This month we launched our annual Winter Appeal. The funds donated to our Appeal provide practical support and hope to clients in need. Thank you if you are a regular supporter – every little bit helps. Turn to page 12 to see how you can become involved.

Best wishes,
Chris Jones, CEO
