Anglican Family Care in partnership with the Anglican community supports children, expectant mothers, parents and families to achieve good education, social and health outcomes in the Dunedin, Central Otago and South Otago regions. While our main focus is around families, we also assist individuals in Dunedin who seek our support for budgeting advice and payment of electricity bills. Our mission is to provide social services to children and families in Otago that help restore well-being and enhance social resiliency.
Your on-going support is much appreciated.

About the AAW
The AAW was formed in September 1969. It is an Anglican New Zealand-wide umbrella organisation which also includes Polynesia. Affiliated groups include Fellowships, Guilds, Mothers’ Union and Young Women’s Groups. It is open to all women, and we have our own national magazine called “CIRCLE”. There are 16 groups throughout the Diocese with approximately 230 members, 9 Lone members and 1 Life member. We offer Christian support, friendship, social interaction and fellowship which is a great way to network with other women.
Overseas and Outreach is one arm of AAW and it is very active within New Zealand and overseas. Funds given by members support projects to help women and children anywhere. An Emergency Fund is set up to provide relief in natural disasters both within New Zealand and overseas.
AAW is affiliated to National Council of Women, which gives our members a voice for lobbying Government and to work for positive change through our own Social Concerns arm of AAW. AAW groups have representatives who attend NCW meetings in their areas.
AAW has taught women how to be leaders, to develop public speaking skills, to be involved in Worship leading and many other skills, which not only helps them in their daily lives but also in Parish life, with nurturing Christian family life, pastoral visiting and outreaching into the community. Some AAW members take an active part in ministry work or other work on diocesan, regional or community committees.
The current theme for AAW is ‘Grow in Discipleship, Dreams, Dedication’.
Goals and our Vision
1] Outreach within the parish and community: visiting our elderly and infirm. Music and Movement Groups for pre-schoolers. Supporting Food Banks, Anglican Family Care.
2] Young Women’s Groups to meet socially once a month to bond; later on may lead to further church activity e.g. Sunday School teaching, flowers, needlework, cleaning and AAW.
3] Men’s Nights, inviting our husbands/partners to a pot luck tea with guest speaker, games night or just a social time.
For AAW Groups that have a more senior age group or cannot actively outreach then these goals may suit them:
1] Choose an Overseas and Outreach project and do something with it for the next 12 months, with follow up reports
e.g. Operation Christmas Child or Anglican Family Care.
2] Choose 1 or 2 projects from Social Concerns and go with this for the 12 months, with follow up reports
e.g. Reading to the elderly, visiting the members alone at home or in care.
It is important for us to include all groups regardless of numbers or ages. We all need to feel that we can contribute something –we are all worthy to do things for the Lord and we are all able to PRAY. It is also important for us, as part of our first aim to participate in the mission of the Church.
