Mission Australia stands together with Australians in need, until they can stand for themselves.
Introduction
Mission Australia is a non-denominational Christian community service organisation that has been helping people regain their independence for over 150 years. Independence is something we all strive for, but life rarely turns out as planned. Life’s complicated.

We’ve learnt the reasons behind a loss of independence are different for everyone. Similarly, the paths to regaining it are complicated and varied. This informs the way we work. We offer a wide range of solutions over the long term, through early learning and youth services, family support and homelessness initiatives, employment and skills development, to affordable housing.

Our nationwide team of over 3,500 staff uses different approaches, often applied in unison and inspired by Christian values. We’re joined in our work by governments, our corporate partners and everyday Australians who provide their generous support.

Importantly, we all share a single objective – to stand together with Australians in need, until they can stand for themselves.
