In addition to the services AnglicareSA provides in the community, we also conduct research which helps us identify how best to respond to needs and issues in ways that enhance dignity and integrity, and which promote social justice.
AnglicareSA and Flinders University
In 2009, AnglicareSA and Flinders University signed a memorandum of understanding to foster co-operation and collaboration between the institutions for their mutual benefit and that of their staff, clients and students.
The partnership between AnglicareSA and Flinders University has led to the establishment of the Australian Centre for Community Services Research (ACCSR) as a leading a centre for research into social equity, social justice, social inclusion and social service. The centre sits within Flinders University with AnglicareSA as the principle and founding partner.
