Annual Report Queensland 2019 -20

This financial year has seen the Society continue to deliver much need home visitations, programs and services across the State. The 2019 - 20 Annual Report theme There when you need us is an extension to our 2019 theme of Always there, always will be. It captures the high need of Queenslanders faced with current and future financial stress during the 2019/20 year caused by impacts of COVID-19, bushfire, enduring droughts, as well as ongoing poverty. Highlights include:

  • Supported Queenslanders on 279,698 occasions

  • Provided $272 million in services and support to people in need

  • $7 million given to Queenslanders in disaster assistance and

  • $9.2 million given in direct emergency assistance

  • Fed vulnerable people with $3.7 million in food support, including food parcels and vouchers

  • Raised more than $12 million thanks to public appeal donations, fundraising events and bequest.
