UnitingCare Queensland

UnitingCare Queensland originated from modest beginnings around the end of World War II with community services provided by the pioneering congregations of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches.

In 1999 the Uniting Church Assembly Standing Committee approved the name of UnitingCare Australia for the national body and UnitingCare Queensland was established soon after, followed by the launch of Uniting HealthCare (later to become UnitingCare Health) in June 2000 at The Wesley Hospital. 

The organisation comprising Blue Care, UnitingCare Community (formally Lifeline Community Care Queensland) and UnitingCare Health now employs in excess of 15,000 staff in more than 400 locations, delivering a broad array of services to a wide range of individuals and communities throughout Queensland.
