Anglicare North Queensland
In 1985 the Anglican Diocese of North Queensland, established Cairns Anglican Youth Services (CAYS) on a volunteer basis through local parishes, which saw the opening of the first crisis accommodation for youth in Cairns.
In 1997, Anglicare Mackay and Whitsunday merged with Anglicare North Queensland to create an organisation with a capability to deliver community services across North Queensland.
Today the organisation is known as Anglicare North Queensland Limited and delivers 18 services across the Diocese. Anglicare North Queensland specialises in child safety, mental health and homelessness services including a number of government funded programs.
Donations and corporate sponsorships are valuable to support Anglicare and extend its ministry.
