Our region



Anglicare North Coast is located in the Anglican Diocese of Grafton, with a geographical domain extending over 50,000 square kilometres from Tweed Heads in far northern NSW to Port Macquarie / Wauchope in the south. Major centres in the region include Tweed Heads, Lismore, Ballina, Casino, Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Kempsey and Port Macquarie.

According to the 2016 census there are more than 560,000 people living in our region. Many of these people are disadvantaged compared to people in other parts of Australia. For example: average household incomes are significantly lower, unemployment levels are higher and there is a critical lack of affordable housing.
