Anglicare North Queensland


In 1985 the Anglican Diocese of North Queensland, established Cairns Anglican Youth Services (CAYS) on a volunteer basis through local parishes, which saw the opening of the first crisis accommodation for youth in Cairns.

In 1997, Anglicare Mackay and Whitsunday merged with Anglicare North Queensland to create an organisation with a capability to deliver community services across North Queensland.

Today the organisation is known as Anglicare North Queensland Limited and delivers 18 services across the Diocese. Anglicare North Queensland has experience in a broad range of service areas across the region including, Housing and Homelessness, Youth Support, Out of Home Care for young people, Public Diversionary and Community Outreach services. As an organisation, Anglicare North Queensland works towards reducing systemic social disadvantage in Australia and has operated throughout the region for over 30 years.

Donations and corporate sponsorships are valuable to support Anglicare and extend its ministry.
