The strength of our organisation, our values, and our purpose is embodied through our people.
Every day we see our dedicated staff making a difference in people’s lives. The compassionate and expert care Carinity delivers is only possible because of the high quality of people who work for us.
We now have over 1,000 employees across Queensland delivering vital services to people in need. This includes the areas of aged care, retirement living, education, family counselling, domestic violence prevention, mental health, youth accommodation and community support.
Carinity’s volunteers are invaluable. They give unmeasurable support to the communities they work in and our organisation is immensely grateful.
Our 190 volunteers across Queensland freely give of their time, energy and experience to support a wide range of activities for people who choose Carinity. They are an integral part of the organisation through their friendship, experience and connections within communities. The hard work and commitment of volunteers is especially appreciated.
In November we recognised the hard work and dedication of the unsung heroes of Carinity at a special Thank You High Tea.
Maureen Bishop, who has volunteered at Carinity Karinya Place in Laidley for 15 years, was named the Volunteer of the Year. Maureen is motivated to give back because of the wonderful care her husband and mother received at Carinity.
“A lot of the residents were there when my mother was there, and I just can’t break that bond because they look forward to me coming there and talking to them,”
