Tasmanian Disaster Fund
Following the disastrous bush fires in early 2013, AHW established a permanent Anglican Tasmanian Disaster Fund, to enable the Diocese to respond promptly to future catastrophic events. In the aftermath of the fires, it took some days to set up a mechanism to receive the generous donations which came in for relief and recovery efforts. Now the Fund is ready to go at a moment's notice in response to any future disaster event in Tasmania. In 2016, the Fund responded to the major floods around the State, providing around $70,000 in relief to those in towns and rural areas who were severely affected. Donations to the Fund may be made at any time. Parishes affected by disasters may discuss funding with AHW's Executive Officer.
Anglican Health & Welfare (AHW) plays a major role in the Diocese of Tasmania. AHW is an incorporated public company, fully owned by the Diocese and founded in 1985. It manages a number of funds for the church, the bulk of which originated with the sale of St Johns Hospital.
The primary role of the AH&W Board is the wise investment of the funds and the distribution of the income from these funds to parishes and other church bodies, aimed at enhancing the capacity of the church to respond to need and distress in the Tasmanian community.
All grants must be used for projects which complement at least one of AH&W's objects, which relate as the name implies to the fields of health and welfare, reflecting the original source of the funds from the sale of two Anglican hospitals. Broadly the objectives cover activities designed to assist people in need, including those in distressed circumstances, the sick and dying, and those living with mental illness.
If you were seriously ill in hospital, if a family member was in prison, or living in an aged care facility, you would like to think a Chaplain is available to offer care at a vulnerable point in life.
As part of the Anglican Church in Tasmania, Anglican Health & Welfare provides and supports Chaplains in hospitals, aged care and the Prison Service. Even if you never have to call on a Chaplain, if you value their caring ministry, you may like to offer financial support to sustain their work.
Anglican Health & Welfare also offers help to Tasmanians in real need through a variety of local activities such as a mental health program for high school students, grants to parishes to help people in real need, or employment of two Pastoral Workers and a Youth Worker for those devastated by the January 2013 bush fires.
