Who we are
We are an agency of the Uniting Church in Australia. We live in a society where people are more isolated, and there’s less contact. Especially people who live in the bush. We are the companion who turns up out of the blue to lend an ear, give a helping hand, and be of service. It’s the Australian way of giving everyone a fair go, and helping other folk. And we’ve been doing it for 106 years.
For the love of helping people
We do what we do for the love of helping people. Helping people is human nature. If I can help anyone I will – even if it’s just a smile and saying, “Howdy”. Frontier Services is about making this life connection between people. A telephone call and a chat. A friendly face. A listening ear. A helping hand. It’s called mateship. And it happens on an emotional, a physical, and a spiritual level.
We dream of an Australia where everyone who lives in our regional and remote areas are cared for and supported, and have a mantle of safety and wellbeing. Australian people who live out bush experience the tyranny of distance and social isolation. These include indigenous communities, isolated properties, mining communities, and other remotely located communities. And for them, we are the people who turn up out of the blue to lend an ear, give a helping hand, and be of service.
