Anglicare SA was established just over 150 years ago, in 1860. It retains strong links with the Anglican Church, having many services operating in cooperation with local churches.
The Statement of Purpose for Anglicare SA, is that on behalf of the Anglican Church it expresses God's love for individuals, families and communities by:
