About Carinity

Carinity is a leading not-for-profit, Christian based care organisation. We help individuals and families reach their full potential and live enriched lives.

Formerly known as Queensland Baptist Care, for over 70 years Carinity has been making a real difference to people in need through the provision of comprehensive and integrated community services. This includes providing affordable and integrated retirement communities, care to the aged and frail, shelters for homeless youth, help for families and young people experiencing difficult times, support for people with disability, chaplaincy and alternative education for teenagers who struggle in traditional schools.

We believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure.

At Carinity we believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure – a place where you are valued, included, where your voice is heard and you are respected.

Derived from the words “care” and “affinity”, our name represents our purpose, always striving to create experiences where you feel a sense of belonging.

A ministry of Queensland Baptists, and a member of Baptist Care Australia, Carinity is supported in our mission to make a difference.

Thought of the day


“This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the payment for our sins (1 John 4:10). God’s actions throughout history define love. We are sometimes tempted to question God’s love in allowing atrocities or tragedies in our lives. But rather than us setting the standard for love and judging God by it, we ought to define love by God’s actions (think of the Cross – endured for our salvation) and judge ourselves by the standard he sets.
