Faith-based organisations do not support current Religious Discrimination Bill
We (GSANZ, Anglicare Victoria, JewishCare, Jesuit Social Services, McAuley Community Services for Women, Sacred Heart, and Uniting) represent a range of community service organisations with a faith background. We come from many different faiths and our organisations are formed, and operate, in different ways. Our services work with some of Australia’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people. Those who are homeless, suffer from hunger, loneliness, experience family violence, use drugs and alcohol. We also provide aged care, foster services for children, supports for people with disability and we run opportunity shops.
