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

Winners are Grinners – really??

How are your plans working out at the moment? … as you envisaged? An easy mistake to make in life, is to think we can ONLY win and grin when we’re MAKING good stuff happen. Thankfully, the record of the human race disagrees. The Bible records how God often works through weaknesses too. Recently we celebrated Easter, the celebration that out of Christ’s death, God brought immortality – seems impossible! But the resurrection of Jesus is historical fact. No wonder Paul, one of Jesus’ battle-hardened followers said, “when I am weak, then I am strong”. 2 Corinthians 12:10
