Uniting exists to inspire people, enliven communities and confront injustice.
We work to address the causes of vulnerability and disadvantage, and stand for a just society where individuals and communities are valued and connected.
Uniting is a community services organisation of the Uniting Church Western Australia. Our work is underpinned by our foundation: Christ invites us to serve humanity by creating an inclusive, connected and just world.
We support people experiencing complex challenges throughout the Perth metropolitan area and in the Great Southern. And we’re proud to support thousands of West Australians every year.
At Uniting, we recognise the strength and connection First Peoples have to community and Country. And we believe in embracing the wisdom, stories and culture of First Peoples to achieve positive outcomes.
Our work is guided by Uniting WA Strategic Plan 2020-2023.
We are nurturing, generous and thoughtful in our words and deeds.
We act with honesty and integrity, and open our hearts to all people without exception.
We boldly face injustice and stand up for what is right and true with confidence and strength.
We challenge convention, explore new possibilities and dare to dream for a better future.
The Uniting team
At Uniting, we’re for people. Our team listens without judgement and proudly walk alongside the people we support, amplifying the voices of those in the Western Australian community who aren’t being heard.
We celebrate diversity and welcome all people regardless of ethnicity, faith, age, ability, culture, language, gender identity or sexual orientation.
We work to build relationships and create meaningful connections. We partner deeply with First Peoples to build a strong future together.
