Integrated communities, delivering choices for communities

At Churches of Christ, our integrated communities are informed by the needs of the local community and based on individual needs. They allow residents to access services and social supports that are available on the campus where they feel safe, respected and valued.

Campuses offer holistic care and service in a location where the broader community can benefit from the additional services provided. Our integrated communities are located across Queensland and in Victoria. They’re a mixture of care and support services, depending on the local communities’ needs.

Our integrated community model is not a group of buildings in one location but a philosophy of holistic client care and service.

Community environment

In a true community environment, all residents are welcome to join in campus activities and lifestyle programs.

Residents can contribute to a vibrant community where people care for others and are cared for and valued themselves, and the broader community benefit from the services offered.

Our integrated community campuses brings together the care, church community and support services to work collaboratively for the uplift of residents and the broader community.
