Family situations aren't always easy but we’re here to support every family member to live safe, healthy and productive lives, even when the chips are down.

 

Whether it’s navigating the difficult waters of separation, helping to maintain precious bonds between parent and child, or simply finding ways to become a better parent, UnitingCare can help. Even in the midst of family violence, we work to change behaviours and provide sanctuary. Our early education and childcare services stretch across the state (even to places with co-ordinates instead of an address) to ensure every Queenslander has the opportunity to reach their potential.

 

And we don’t do it alone – we'll work with you, local communities, other service providers and government to help build thriving and resilient communities.
