In the Community
The Anglican Church in Western Australia has had a strong and visible presence in the community for over 150 years.
Through a range of Caring Organisations, the Anglican Diocese of Perth seeks to engage with the poor and the disadvantaged, and to provide care for the vulnerable in our society.
Dedicated aged care facilities operated by Amana Living and Meath Care provide a range of care options throughout the metropolitan area to the elderly. Anglicare WA, our largest welfare agency, works with people, families and their communities to cope with the challenges of life. St Bartholomew’s House provides community based support, accommodation and assistance to the homeless, and Parkerville Children & Youth Care protects and cares for the most vulnerable children and youth in our community.
The Anglican Diocese of Perth is also committed to providing the highest quality educational opportunities through its six Independent Schools and the 10 affordable and accessible schools operated by the Anglican Schools Commission.
Chaplaincy is a significant opportunity to share the compassion of Christ in organisations such as hospitals, prisons, schools, aged care facilities, and the Defence Force.
