Justice 2021 - Toward a more just Australia
Baptist Care Australia joined with other affiliates to publish the Justice 2021 report, which calls for action by the Australian Parliament and the Commonwealth Government to move our soceity towards a great realisation of justice.
Justice is fundamental to every society that values the wellbeing of all its members. In the Christian tradition, to which the Australian Baptist churches belong, justice is grounded in the conviction that the earth and its resources are the gifts of God for the sustaining of all life, and that human communities are to be both the recipients and the stewards of this divine generosity.
Australia's Kids - The State of the Nation
Like all Australians, we at Baptist Care Australia want to see the nation’s children, families and communities flourish. Our vision is to work towards a nation of hope-filled, purposeful people building communities where every voice is heard.
Our commitment is to the safety, happiness, participation and empowerment of all children. All Australian children have the right to access and receive quality supports and services where and when they need them. If this is the Australia we want, the wellbeing of our children is a crucial starting point. Our childhood sets the course of our future. The memories and experiences we have as a child remain with us throughout our lives, affecting the adults we become in the most fundamental of ways.
If we want to know how we can work to improve the lives of Australia’s children, we need to know what life is like for young people in 2019. This report looks at seven fundamental aspects of a child’s life. We explore the state of the nation and how we can make meaningful changes to the lives of Australia’s kids.
