A long and proud history of supporting people in need

Since 1907, Wesley Mission Queensland (WMQ) has been helping people across Queensland build stronger and more inclusive communities. Previously as a mission activity born of the Albert Street Uniting Church, WMQ is a not-for-profit providing community support; mental health services; aged, disability and palliative care; and retirement living through our 13 residential aged care homes, three retirement villages, 14 specialist disability accommodation facilities and two hospices. We also deliver state-wide community support and Auslan interpreting services to members of the Deaf community nationally. Our staff engage with people from all walks of life to encourage choice and independence.

WMQ has a long and proud history of supporting people in need. Founded in the 1900s to provide meals to children and women in need, we now operate as an Institution of the 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, and vulnerable children and families. Through its Reconciliation Action Plan, Wesley Mission Queensland celebrates diversity and stands with First Nations Peoples for an equal and united future.

With more than 3000 employees and 2400 volunteers working across approximately 90 services, we are guided by the Wesley Charter, a framework that guides our interactions with the people we serve. Our people strive to make a difference in people’s lives by building relationships, showing respect and demonstrating compassion.
