Interim CEO’s message

Compassion and caring for others were key components of Jesus’ love for humankind. Following the example of Jesus, Carinity exists to support Queenslanders in need whilst adhering to those same principles.

Carinity people continually strive to make a positive difference to those who face challenges – and empower them to create positive change in their lives.

Our dedicated care givers ensure seniors are given the opportunity to live a life with purpose. This includes enabling seniors to reap the benefits of staying active, and regaining their ability to live more independently.

The support offered by Carinity people extends beyond the services we provide. As well as supporting seniors through her role with Carinity, the selfless Tammy Robinson assists vulnerable high school students through her award-winning not-for-profit social enterprise.

It isn’t just Carinity people who are supporting others in need. Our animal helpers and partners from the Queensland Baptist movement are also making major contributions in their communities.

Therapy dogs provide vital support to young people at Carinity Education schools, forming extraordinary bonds with students and delivering them consistent comfort. This animal therapy has had a remarkable impact on our students’ school experience.

Carinity partners with Baptist churches to support vulnerable people in their neighbourhood, helping to relieve and mitigate disadvantage. One such project sees a Brisbane church assist migrants, refugees and families facing crisis due to the rising cost of living.

In this edition of Belong we look at how Carinity is helping to foster, support and grow vital ‘communities of care’ across the state.

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others (Philippians 2:3–4).

DAVID ANGELL, Interim Carinity CEO
