About Us

Anglican Family Care is a social services agency that has served the people of Dunedin and Otago since 1970. Our main office is based in Dunedin. The rural offices are based in Balclutha, Oamaru, Alexandra, and Wanaka.

Our main focus is tamariki, rangatahi and their whānau, but we also provide services that support individuals in need.

Our services are for all people regardless of beliefs because we respect the values and beliefs of the Anglican Church, especially “To respond to human needs by loving service".

Our programmes are government-funded and approved, and delivered free-of-charge to our diverse client base. The majority of our work is funded under contract with Oranga Tamariki and the Ministry of Social Development. The Ministry of Justice funds our Restorative Justice Otago service. As well as our programmes, we deliver other important services to support families and individuals in the Otago region. It is our generous donors that make this possible, and we are hugely grateful for this! Please consider being a part of supporting the Otago community by supporting us.

Anglican Family Care is proudly associated with the Anglican Care Network
