Anglicare Southern Queensland’s 2022 in Review

In 2022, we proudly supported over forty-five thousand Queenslanders. We’re ready to support thousands more in 2023.

Although the year had its challenges, our frontline staff did an incredible job supporting our clients.

We supported:
– 800 Residential Aged Care residents
– Over 32,000 Help at Home clients
– More than 1,800 families in foster and kinship care and parenting support
– Over 10,000 Mental Health clients

Our aged care staff were recognised for their dedication by being voted the Most Trusted Brand in Aged Care and Retirement Homes for a 4th year in a row. Additionally, we won the Quality Service Award for Home Care at the Reader’s Digest awards. We celebrated the achievements of our staff across the organisation through our Excellence Awards, highlighting the outstanding work of those who go above and beyond.

Our staff across the organisation shared their expertise on a variety of topics, from correct mask wearing to how to conserve native macadamia trees. We also heard from our staff across different regions about why they love to work for our organisation.

For NAIDOC week, we got up, stood up and showed up to support and celebrate First Nations people across Australia. We aim to continuously strengthen our ties with First Nations People through education, community support, and decisive action. This year we were proud to join every organisation in the Anglicare Australian network in formally pledging our support for an Indigenous Voice to Parliament.

For our Christmas Appeal, we celebrated Cherice, a former client who stayed in our homelessness accommodation facilities when she became homeless at 16. Cherice’s story shows the incredible impact that our staff and our generous donors have.

We’ve supported Queenslanders in their homes, their schools, their workplaces and their communities for over 150 years, and 2022 was no different.

To our staff and clients across the state, thank you for inspiring us every day to create a more just, equal and loving society.
