Who We Are

We are proud of the work we do, the services we deliver and the programs we offer – but most of all, we are proud of our community. This is what makes BaptistCare special. We are a community of people who respect one another’s individuality, and who value the support and friendship that comes from an  improved quality of life. We are passionate about life transforming care. This is because we practise it every day, in countless ways. At BaptistCare we encourage independence whilst strongly valuing the connections we share within our community. This is the BaptistCare difference. Together, we provide care you can trust.

About Our Community

Our Wallsend centre provides a caring hub where a range of services are delivered, including access to low-cost nutritional food and chaplaincy services. Respecting the individuality of all, the centre is a safe and welcoming place where people living with disadvantage can address key issues including social and financial exclusion, mental health challenges, drug and alcohol dependence, and housing needs.

    Community Space
    The Community Centre plays an integral role in the Newcastle community as safe and welcoming place for homeless persons and people living on the margins. The Centre provides a place where some of the most lonely and vulnerable people in our community are supported to address key issues, such as personal health, drug and alcohol dependence, mental health and housing needs. Responding with compassion, practical care and support, the service assists clients in developing skills to build independence and resilience.
