2019 State of the Family Report – Our Better Selves

Our Better Selves: Appreciating and Re-Imagining Our Work to Create Change has been the culmination of an eighteen month project. It was made up of five separate teams from across the Anglicare Australia Network.

These teams conducted appreciative inquiries into their services, discovering the best of what they do how they make strong connections and build change in their communities. Anglicare Australia thanks to Anglicare Southern Queensland, Samaritans Foundation, Anglicare NT, St John’s Youth Services and Anglicare WA for leading their inquiries and investing in the project. The story of each inquiry is at the heart of this report.

Our Better Selves brings together the overarching themes from the five inquiries and uses them to re-imagine how we go about our work. It offers a number of actions the Anglicare Australia Network can take to draw on deep knowledge in the network to build a powerful and positive culture of development and change.
