Uniting Care Tasmania, which formed in 2008, is an agency of the Victorian and Tasmanian Synod of the Uniting Church. It provides services to families and communities as well as acting as an advocate for social justice. In 2013, the Hobart Benevolent Society, which assists people in poverty, and Cerebral Palsy Tasmania are a part of Uniting Care.
Uniting Care has had a presence in Tasmania for about 20 years in the form of the Family Resource Centre in Patterson Street, Launceston, emergency relief in Bridgewater and Gagebrook, which are northern suburbs of Hobart, and Scots Child Care Centre, Hobart.
