Our Organisation

Centacare FNQ has served the community of Far North Queensland since 1981. As the Social Services agency of the Catholic Diocese of Cairns, Centacare FNQ proudly works with the community to deliver social services, underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching, to support the needs of residents in the region.

As an organisation, Centacare FNQ has focused on community wellbeing in the broadest sense, not only within the immediate Cairns area but also across the whole of the Far North Queensland region. Centacare FNQ continues to strive to maintain its commitment to supporting and assisting people living within the Far North Queensland community who are most in need.

We provide services that are community driven, easy to access and that make a difference in the lives of individuals, families and the Far North Queensland region. As a local organisation, we want to improve the community in which we live and we know that starts with listening and working together with local people. We will listen and always try to make a difference.

Our Way

Centacare FNQ works in and with the Far North Queensland Community using the principles of Catholic Social Teaching to guide us. 

We acknowledge, value and respect the traditional custodians of this land. We are committed to providing professional, inclusive services, using place-based thinking, and prioritising wellbeing and safety in all we do.
