Anglicare Southern Queensland works in partnership with individuals, couples and families to develop self-reliance, resilience and independence.

familyOur services have been designed to provide early intervention support, counselling and group programs for families experiencing stress due to emotional, physical or economic change.

We adopt a 'whole of family' approach to assist families to identify their strengths and work together to improve those areas causing stress. Each family works with a client care co-ordinator to identify the goals and specific strategies and services required to support the family to realise its full potential.

Our services include:

  • Goal planning
  • Household management
  • Parenting
  • Relationship enhancement
  • Individual, couple & family counselling
  • Child/youth counselling
  • Employment preparation
  • Post separation parenting



Post-separation parenting programs

Anglicare understands the impact that separation has on the family unit and in particular, children. We work with parents to provide support and develop coping mechanisms throughout the separation process.

Anglicare runs a course designed to help individuals developing functional post separation co-parenting strategies for the benefit of all parties.

Children and young adults


Anglicare provides counselling and accommodation services to young people aged 12 -18 who are at risk of homelessness or are homeless. Counselling support and mediation is available for young people and their families, and may deal with family conflict, behavioural issues, communication skills or conflict with friends.

Accommodation services are available to young people aged over 16 years who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness. While living in Anglicare youth accommodation programs, young people are supported to develop skills to enable them to live independently. If needed, counselling and support is provided to enable them to return to live in the family home. Crisis accommodation (up to 3 months duration) and transitional accommodation (up to 12 months) is provided.

Anglicare crisis accommodation is fully staffed on a 24-hour basis by trained and caring professional staff.

Youth support co-ordinators

The youth support co-ordinator initiative is aimed at young people who have newly disengaged, or who are at risk of disengaging, from education and training.  Young people aged 14 to 17 years who are at risk of not completing Year 12 are supported through services such as individual case work, group activities and community projects with the aim of promoting social inclusion and increasing participation in education and training.
Anglicare youth support co-ordinators work in a range of school and community settings, and are important members of the education team. Anglicare is funded to provide youth support co-ordinators in:

  • Roma and surrounds (Roma child protection and youth services)
  • Chinchilla (Roma child protection and youth services)

Anglicare youth support co-ordinator programs are funded through the youth support co-ordinator initiative, a joint initiative of the Queensland Departments of Education, Training and Employment and the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.

Women’s shelter

Anglicare Southern Queensland offers a range of programs to provide support to women and children experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis.

Anglican Women’s Hostel

The Anglican Women’s Hostel, located in the inner western Brisbane suburb of Bardon, provides crisis accommodation for a total of 18 single women, unaccompanied by a child or partner, who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of becoming homeless.

The accommodation features 14 self-contained apartments designed to provide crisis accommodation, with an additional four apartments reserved for transitional accommodation.

Anglican Women’s Hostel was established in 1976 in the Brisbane suburb of New Farm to provide crisis accommodation and support to women experiencing homelessness. In early 2012 the service will have relocated to Bardon pending the development of purpose built accommodation in Toowong.

Anglican Women’s Hostel residents are able to maintain their independence while being supported by 24-hour staffing arrangements. Intensive case management to address barriers to housing and to enhance participation in the community is also provided in addition to referrals to a range of support services and resources in the community.

Anglican Women’s Hostel also provides medium term accommodation and support to women who transition from the crisis accommodation program into independent living. With a number of properties located within the community, eligible women are provided with the opportunity to access affordable housing for up to 12 months, with continued support and case management to sustain their housing.

Anglicare Southern Queensland is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for women that meets their needs and respects their life choices. Click here to read about Anglican Women's Hostel development
