UnitingCare Kippax is proud to be the auspicing body for A Village for Every Child. This is an initiative that is working in deep collaboration across sectors to ensure all children in Belconnen are physically, socially and emotionally ready to engage fully in learning and life. Together, we’re strengthening the system to support all families.


Times
of crisis

Hardship can happen to anyone at any time and can cause much stress and anxiety. This can be due to a sudden unexpected expense such as a washing machine breakdown, a change in employment status, or a change in relationship. At UnitingCare Kippax, we’re able to help you through these times. Read more about our emergency support

Get
work ready

Finding employment and training opportunities can be challenging. With the right support, you can start on a meaningful pathway to the right job for you. Our social enterprise, The Mower Shed, offers excellent on-the-job training and valuable work experience leading to better future employment opportunities. SPARK delivers a unique training and employment initiative that focuses on engagement, training and employment programs for disadvantaged groups disconnected from employment.
