UnitingCare West has strong relationships and partnerships with Uniting Church Schools.
Members of our team, including our School Liaison Officer, work in partnership with teachers, chaplains, community service coordinators, pastoral care staff, deans of house, principals, headmasters, deputy principals and other school staff to assist school children from k-12 to develop an interest and commitment to social justice, service learning and values education.
Students have the opportunity to develop the lifelong skills of advocacy, which support philanthropy within the community, and which encourage a purposeful and meaningful life.
This program consists of school visits with a focus on planning collaborative social justice activities, supporting service learning advocacy, fundraising events and curriculum activities.
The ultimate objective of our partnership with Uniting Church Schools and their communities is to increase the number of young people who become engaged in the issues that affect their community - and to improve their skills, confidence and experience when it comes to getting involved.
Through advocacy and fundraising activities which support UnitingCare West's services, students become empowered to help others in need and understand the diversity of the community in which they live.
Students are also encouraged to promote a world where Australian children live the values of care and compassion, and so develop a lifelong sense of moral and social responsibility. They are empowered to make a tangible difference to the lives of others.
