WHAT DOES IT COST TO BE A CAREWORKS PARTNER? 

There is no cost. However, Partners must be an affiliate of Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania.  

DO WE QUALIFY AS A PARTNER? 

To become a CareWorks Partner, a church or agency needs to be running or planning to run a program or ministry that qualifies as a benevolent program. That is, there must be an identifiable target group which is recognisably in need of assistance because of poverty, sickness, disability, destitution, suffering, misfortune, helplessness, or other kind of distress.
