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 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

Forgiveness

Someone once described forgiveness as “giving up the right to get even.” Forgiveness is as much something we decide not to do, as something that we do. Choosing to let someone off the hook is hard, but it’s a lot easier when we remember how much we have been excused. “But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:15).
