About Carinity

Carinity is a leading not-for-profit, Christian based care organisation that has been changing lives of people in need – helping individuals and families reach their full potential to live enriched lives.

Since 1949 Carinity, formerly Queensland Baptist Care, has been making a real difference to people through comprehensive and integrated community services. This includes providing affordable and integrated retirement communities, care to the aged and frail, shelters for homeless youth, help for families and young people experiencing difficult times, support for people with disability, chaplaincy and alternative education for teenagers who struggle in traditional schools.

We believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure.

At Carinity we believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure – a place where you are valued, included, where your voice is heard and you are respected.

Derived from the words “care” and “affinity”, our name represents our purpose, always striving to create experiences where you feel a sense of belonging.

A ministry of Queensland Baptists, and a member of Baptist Care Australia, Carinity is supported in our mission to make a difference.

Thought of the day

Do you feel Loved Today?

Trick question, sorry - feelings wax and wane. The better question is, “Do you know you ARE loved today, regardless of how you feel?” – the Cross of Christ proves it. Tons of things influence how we feel: not drinking enough water, how much sleep we’ve had, getting some exercise, the media we absorb. And Jesus said something interesting: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” John 15:9. Don’t mentally “drop out” of God’s love. Settle in your mind permanently - you ARE loved.
