Kildonan UnitingCare (2007 - 2017)

Community Service Organisation, Protestant, Records Access Service and Uniting Church

Kildonan UnitingCare came into being in 2007, the name reflecting its partnership with UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania Network. At its establishment, its emphasis was on intensive family support, early intervention and prevention. Kildonan UnitingCare's predecessor agencies have been providing services to children since 1881, when the Scots' Church Neglected Children's Aid Society was established by two stalwarts of the Presbyterian Church, Miss Selina Sutherland and Mrs Maria Lord Armour. In 2017, Kildonan UnitingCare became part of a new organisation called Uniting (Victoria and Tasmania) Limited.
