Cairns Regional Council – Citizen of the Year It ...[read more]
Our primary focus. We will advocate, identify and meet the needs of the frail aged, people with disabilities and their carers.
We value our people and treat them with respect and dignity. We are one organisation – one team, delivering services to our communities.
St John’s strives for excellence through continuous improvement and is accountable to its funding bodies and the community for what it does, how it does it, ensuring that the best outcomes are achieved.
We believe that individuals and families are in the best position to determine their own needs. We collaborate with individuals, families, communities, Government and other Non-Government agencies to plan and design services. This ensures that services and funding will be provided to best meet individual needs.
We believe in the intrinsic value of relationships between members of the community and people with disabilities, their families and peers. We will continue to promote their importance to the overall community.
We recognise that the frail aged and people with disabilities that live in remote areas or with different cultural and linguistic backgrounds require services that reflect their circumstances.
