For most people, 2020 has been a difficult year full of challenges. For Anglicare Central Queensland it has helped us strengthen and grow as an organisation, all the while we extended essential support and housing to people across Central Queensland.
A few of AnglicareCQ’s other positives have been our ever-improving financial position which finished 173.45% stronger than last financial year. Further to this, the organisation has grown to include new vital projects in areas such as mental health and housing. AnglicareCQ was awarded funding to build four new units for women and children moving from domestic and family violence situations.
CEO Carol Godwin says that the AnglicareCQ team responded well during COVID-19, and it highlighted the team’s efficiencies and connectedness with improved communication.
“AnglicareCQ did what we do best during difficult times – we supported the people in our communities who were doing it tough to ‘make the best of their lives’.”
The annual report highlights the key roles of AnglicareCQ in the communities; individualised support for those with mental health challenges or disability as well as family support, residential care, youth, counselling, homelessness, financial support foster and kinship care programs.
The key statistics for the year reveal how important AnglicareCQ’s work is in the community.
Ms Godwin says that these positive outcomes and improvements have been made possible by a team “who have put in the hard yards by focusing on strengthening our work, our team and our finances.”
