In July 2012, Lentara UnitingCare (LUC) was formed by the union of UnitingCare Sunshine and Broadmeadows, and Orana UnitingCare.


Serving the people of the North and West of Melbourne, its principal objective is supporting parents, carers, families and communities to reach their full potential by providing programs for people in need, offering opportunities to learn new skills and come together to reduce social isolation, and to advocate for disadvantaged people and community groups.


We support some of the most vulnerable people to access the resources they need for health, wellbeing and participation in the community.The services of Lentara UnitingCare are provided to all people irrespective of cultural background, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or disability.

The Justice and International Mission unit exists to provide resources and to engage with and educate others about issues of social justice.

The activities of the unit range from campaigning for the rights of refugee and asylum seekers to advocating for a global ban on cluster munitions; from gambling issues through to climate change; from issues of inequality to partner churches in the Asia Pacific.

While endeavouring to work alongside congregations and social justice networks, we also embark upon specific advocacy work aimed at shifting and shaping public policy. A dedicated team of staff plus thousands of women and men in networks across the states of Victoria and Tasmania seek to serve the world through the Uniting Church in Australia.

The Uniting Church in Australia (UCA) is the largest non-government provider of community services in Australia. We achieve this through our community services arm, UnitingCare. This is an umbrella of more than 400 agencies, institutions, and parish missions throughout Australia. Areas of service include aged care, children, youth and family, disability, employment, emergency relief, drug and alcohol, youth homelessness and suicide.


The UCA is also prominent in social justice advocacy.  Issues addressed include the environment, the rights and dignity of asylum seekers, the treatment and care of prisoners, inadequate gambling legislation, religious intolerance, multi- and cross-cultural issues, fair employment practices and much more. A key component of our justice work is the UCA’s efforts to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians together and to support the Indigenous community generally. Reconciliation, land rights and Indigenous leadership training are just some of the activities in which we are engaged.


Our social justice and community services work is the UCA’s response to the Bible’s call to care for and protect the marginalised and the vulnerable.
