About us

Anglicare NT is a faith-informed agency, proud of its traditions as an NGO (non-government organisation) and a long-term territory based community service organisation that continues to adapt and respond to the needs of our communities.

Anglicare NT was formed by the Anglican Church in the Northern Territory in response to identified community social needs. From the beginning, services have embraced all Territorians; no one is denied the respect, justice and community of our work. Similarly our staff reflect the full diversity of our community.

Anglicare NT is an equal opportunity employer, ensuring a workplace free from discrimination on the basis of gender, sexuality, age, disability, religion or race.

The values in our motto of respect, fairness and community, as well as many other life-affirming values are expressed in many religious traditions and philosophies. In seeking to live and strengthen our values at Anglicare NT we will reference Christian thought and draw on the resources of the Anglican Church. All staff who agree to work at Anglicare NT are asked to respect the Christian foundation and values of Anglicare NT.
