UnitingCare Queensland - Leap in!

How we can help:

•   Independent living support
•   Holidays program with Beyond Borders Travel
•   Social and community support

With coverage across South-East Queensland, Townsville and Toowoomba, we encourage people to challenge their limits and support them in setting their long-term goals.

UnitingCare Queensland provides health and community services to thousands of people every day of the year through its service groups – UnitingCare Community, UnitingCare Health, Blue Care and more recently ARRCS (Australian Regional and Remote Community Services).

As the health and community service provider of the Uniting Church we have supported Queensland communities for over 100 years. Our 17,000 staff and 9,000 volunteers care for and support people from all walks of life, including older people, people with a disability, children, families and Indigenous people.

Our staff travel thousands of kilometres to reach people in some of the more remote areas of Queensland – from Thursday Island in the far north, to just south of the Queensland border and out west, as far as Mt Isa.
