Purpose of Parish Partnership Funding

The Anglican Diocese of Gippsland and Anglicare Victoria are committed to working together to provide community services and to supporting children, young people, families and communities. As part of this commitment, Parish Partnership funding provides funding to local community projects initiated by local Anglican Parishes.

Parish Partnership Funding will support parish initiatives to nurture community life and strengthen the capacity of local communities by:

  • Undertaking projects which extend the mission of the church into local communities and develop links between church and the local community
  • Building partnerships between the Diocese, individual parishes and Anglicare Victoria
  • Raising the profile of Anglicare Victoria, especially in areas where the agency does not have a strong presence
