UnitingCare Queensland: Challenges of authenticity and congruity
Harriman, Robert S. (2006) UnitingCare Queensland: Challenges of authenticity and congruity. (Unpublished)
This essay is the first of three projects to fulfil the requirements of Doctor of Social Science. This essay focusses on the relationship between the Uniting Church in Australia, Queensland Synod (UCA) and its human services organisation called UnitingCare Queensland (UCQ). The UCA was formed in 1977 by many members of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches in Australia. UCQ is the umbrella organisation for Blue Care, Uniting Health Care, Lifeline Community Care, Wesley Missions and Crossroads. This work is an applied ethics evaluation of internal authenticity and relational congruity with respect to organisational structure. The structure of the UCA is a system of non-hierarchical inter-related councils. The structure of UCQ is hierarchical. Suggestions are offered to address this structural incongruity.
