Responding in loving service as a mission focused organisation to the needs of people within society.

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


Today we are known as Anglicare North Queensland Limited and we deliver a wide range of services across the far northern region. Anglicare receives funding from the state and federal government and specialises in child safety and youth services, mental health and homelessness service provision.


Anglicare North Queensland Limited administers and governs in consultation with the Anglican Diocese of North Queensland and according to the mission, values and philosophy of the Anglican Church in Australia.
