is our story
Everyone has a story. And here at Wesley Mission Queensland, we feel privileged to stand alongside the 100,000 families, children, couples and seniors that we support each year.
We’re an innovative and responsive not-for-profit community service provider, helping people across Queensland build stronger and more inclusive communities since 1907.
Founded in the 1900s to provide meals to children and women in need, Wesley Mission Queensland now operates as a mission activity of the Albert Street Uniting Church. We work collaboratively with other Uniting Church congregations, community organisations and government bodies to provide accessible and flexible services to older people, those living with a disability or mental illness, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, refugees and vulnerable children and families.
With more than 2,400 employees and 1,500 volunteers working across approximately 60 services, we are guided by the Wesley Charter, a framework that guides our interactions with the diverse range of people we serve. Our people work to make a difference in people’s lives by building relationships, showing respect and demonstrating compassion.
