Frontier Services is an agency of the Uniting Church providing a helping hand and a listening ear to people in remote and outback Australia.
The Uniting Church recognises that we live in a society where people are more isolated, especially people who live in the bush. Frontier Services plays an important role in providing a sense of connection between our urban cities and the bush.
Through its volunteer program Outback Links lends a helping hand to farmers and communities when its needed most. They provide a lifeline for families impacted by the hardships of unprecedented drought across the country.
Frontier Services Bush Chaplains travel tens of thousands of kilometres every year visiting families and communities to provide practical, pastoral and spiritual support to those in need.
