In 2014 St John’s expanded beyond the Far North Queensland Region, establishing service sites at Taigum, North Brisbane, and Aitkenvale in Townsville. Taigum is providing Allied Health Care and Domestic Assistance, with outstanding work seeing annual expectations reached within the first six weeks after opening. The Townsville site has exciting times ahead maintaining its growth in Domestic Assistance and the recent announcement of the transition of 400 Home Maintenance clients from Townsville City Council. Both sites have a number of applications placed for the extension of services which will see the sites grow and develop into 2015 and beyond.
St John’s Community Care is a not-for-profit charity which identifies the unmet health, wellbeing and reablement needs of communities and addresses gaps in services.
