The theme of our 2021-22 Impact Report is working together. 

In the past year we have deepened our integration efforts to provide holistic services that back people to thrive. We have also advanced our partnerships, because changing lives, improving systems and influencing social change relies on collaboration.

This report documents highlights and challenges from the past financial year, including stories from some of the inspiring people we have worked with.

“I used to not have the confidence to stand up to people. Now, I don’t take any nonsense. My children’s safety is my top priority.”


“I now have hope, and I never had that before. I am so much happier and I can now fully focus on my school.”


Since 1983, we’ve been building the capacity of the people we support to live independently and participate in the community.

 Our leadership 

 in action 

Led by young people in the Logan area, R4Respect is an education and prevention strategy to support young people to develop the values, knowledge and skills they need for respectful relationships. Logan business, organisations, community groups and government departments lend their full support to this important program.

Backed by our financial counsellors, Done with Debt is a community education campaign offering hints on breaking the debt cycle.

Substation33 is our electronic waste recycling facility, innovation space and place where people can gain work experience.

The Logan Advance to Zero campaign is an initiative to end homelessness and rough sleeping in the Logan region through a coordinated, collaborative and person-centred approach.

We help lead community action to end domestic and family violence in Logan. We aim to change attitudes and behaviours to provide a safe and supportive community where domestic violence is not tolerated.

 We are 

 culturally safe 

We nurture an inclusive culture that promotes value and respect for everyone.

We support the Voice to Parliament and the Queensland Government’s Path to Treaty.

 Help us 

 make change 

We work with people and organisations from varied backgrounds because we have found that by working together, we can achieve the best outcomes. Our volunteers, partners and collaborators bring new skills, shared resources and innovative ways of working. We would value your involvement.
