Uniting is driven by our purpose to inspire people, to enliven communities, and to confront injustice. The challenges of FY20, in the context of COVID-19, have only strengthened this purpose, as we prioritise the health and wellbeing of our clients and team members, making COVID-safety a part of everyday life. This year’s Annual Report provides a snapshot of current projects, programs and partnerships that are strategically aligned with our 4 long-term goals for embracing culture, creating social impact, innovating service evolution, and delivering responsible stewardship.”

We acknowledge Aboriginal peoples in NSW and the ACT as the original and ongoing custodians of the lands and waters on which we all live and work. We recognise the continuing sovereignty of Aboriginal peoples in NSW and the ACT, and their inalienable right to self-determination. We pay our respects to all Elders, past, present, and future, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

Commissioned artwork by Charmaine Mumbulla, a proud Kaurna/ Narungga woman from Point Pearce in South Australia, with family ties to the Gumbaynggirr people of the NSW Mid North Coast. It pays tribute to the diversity of Aboriginal lands and languages across NSW and the ACT, where Uniting supports people and communities with the delivery of vital services. The vibrant circle unites us across the 4 landscapes of desert, forest, coast and mountain, centred by a cross symbolising our work through Christ. A lilly pilly fruit blooms in the heart of the circle, representing nourishment and growth.
