For over 30 years Anglicare Central Queensland has worked with people of all backgrounds, beliefs and walks of life to make the best of their lives.
As an organisation with truly local roots, Anglicare Central Queensland is dedicated to leading the way in the community services sector as we pride ourselves on empowering and supporting our participants, upholding human rights, and advocating for the removal of unjust structures.
Anglicare Central Queensland works across the geographical boundaries of the Rockhampton Anglican Diocese. We serve communities in and around Rockhampton, Gladstone, Biloela, Moura, Blackwater, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach and Winton.
Our Board, staff and volunteers live in the communities they serve, in regional and remote locations.
Underpinning Our Services
Our work is focused on each individual’s needs, priorities and goals. We listen to our participants and offer them choices, options and self determination in the services we provide.
Everyone has strengths and abilities. We don’t gloss over people’s challenges and concerns, but we support the person to discover and build upon their innate strengths, resources and abilities to respond to them.
Culturally aware and competent
We work effectively and respectfully with people from different cultures and backgrounds. We recognise that some groups have experienced discrimination, loss and prejudice and this has an ongoing affect on their wellbeing.
We acknowledge that everyone has human rights, and work to ensure those rights are upheld. We raise issues to address underlying structural causes of disadvantage and disempowerment. We provide services in accessible spaces, and respect the dignity and inherent worth of all people.
Our programs and centres work together to provide co-ordinated, streamlined services suitable for each individual participant. We acknowledge people have many emotional, physical, economic, educational and spiritual needs, and that we are just one source of meeting those needs. We encourage participants to be active members of their communities.
