Life in the Outback can have its challenges. Of course, that’s never stopped you from getting on with life. When you’re trying to raise young ones, it’s good to have someone working with you to bring the right family support, early education and care solutions within reach.


UnitingCare specialises in supporting rural and remote communities through quality, innovative and individualised services and resources that meet the needs of you and your child.


We provide a range of early childhood education and care, including playgroups, home visits, resources, positive parenting support and more. Our employees and teams of top educators are all qualified, caring, motivated and committed professionals.


We also work with communities doing it tough so you can build resilience and overcome adversity. We assist with child wellbeing; work with young children and families in vulnerable situations; and offer one-on-one support.


At UnitingCare, we believe all people deserve quality support, which isn’t always easy to find in the Outback. That’s why we make sure our services are accessible, with centres across outback Queensland and the ability to come to you.


Quality support is closer than you think.
