Cute Kids

Connections UnitingCare is a community organisation with a long and proud history of supporting marginalised and disadvantaged children, young people and families.

We have a vision of children and young people living in safe and strong families within socially inclusive communities. We seek to create opportunities and build resilience to break the cycle of disadvantage and vulnerability through collaboration.

Our Values
Our values of Respect, Equity, Responsiveness, Relationship and Learning affirm and reflect our commitment to the Purpose and Values of our founding body, the Uniting Church in Australia and the UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania network. Our shared values underpin our work and shape the character of our unique relationship with our clients and other stakeholders and our response to social injustice.
Connections aims to reduce our impact on the environment. We have a keen interest in extending our caring role of people to include how we care for the environment. Our interest in the environment comes from an appreciation that environmental degradation has a disproportionate impact on those most disadvantaged.
Cultural Diversity
Connections has a strong commitment to develop culturally appropriate services. We are forging and building partnerships to ensure that we can be guided and can improve our understanding, responsiveness and work with culturally and linguistically diverse people including Aboriginal families and communities.
