Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
As a leading Queensland not for profit organisation, Wesley Mission Brisbane (WMB) has been caring for our community for more than 100 years.Our work is focused around our core service areas of Community Services, Seniors, Education & Child Care and Employment Services. Since our inception in 1906 in the roots of the Albert Street Methodist church in Brisbane, we have been living our mission by supporting people on the margins of our society.The community services arm supports more than 100,000 Queenslanders each year. Our grassroots programs work with some of the most vulnerable people in our community, including youth and families, the unemployed and isolated, young mothers, people living with a disability and those who have nowhere else to turn. Through our extensive networks and programs we are able to offer a comprehensive blanket of support to those who need it most. Whether thats a free warm meal to those living rough, a 24-hour supported accommodation home for young people with high care needs or assisting a family to maintain tenancy, we work holistically and proactively to improve peoples lives. As the first provider of aged care in Queensland we continue to provide high-quality services for Brisbane seniors. Each year we support more than 3,500 seniors to live fulfilling lives through our 13 aged care communities, three, retirement living villages and community care and respite services.
