Our Story

“We aim to provide high quality and distinctively Christian care to all those in the community who are most vulnerable and who would otherwise be isolated from support.”

The Board of Presbyterian Care Tasmania Incorporated is now responsible for the investment, management and distribution of charitable funds derived from the 2017 sale of the former Presbyterian Care Tasmania Aged Care operations.

We are a Registered Charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission with full Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status and Income Tax Exemption (ITE).

Presbyterian Care Tasmania is now building on the strengths of our communities by extending charitable supports to individuals living in necessitous circumstances, enabling them to have controls over their lives and live independently with dignity.

We do this by:

  • providing direct services;
  • supporting charitable and community organisations through partnerships, joint ventures and long-term relationships;
  • by subcontracting arrangements;
  • by providing financial assistance through grants, loans and ongoing funding supports with emphasis on new and emerging services.

Our Mission

Our mission as a not for profit charitable organisation is to provide supportive services and care for the community and those individuals who are in necessitous circumstances regardless of creed, where they will receive Christian support, kindness and relief.

We are unashamedly proud of our Christian heritage and our ethos of

“We Exist to Serve Christ In All We Do”.

Our Vision

Our vision as a Ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Tasmania is to:

“Enable individuals experiencing necessitous circumstances to access resources and supports, to have control over their lives, and live independently with dignity.”
