Care Balonne Association Inc.(Care Balonne) was established in 1994 and is primarily an information and referral service covering the whole of the Balonne Shire, based in the town of St George. Our vision is to be recognised as a progressive organisation that aspires to increase the viability of our community by being aware of the community needs and developing strategies to meet these needs.
Care Balonne Association is governed by a committee with members from within our community that have a wealthy of knowledge and expertise:

Our Community Development Officer covers a wide range of services including information and referral to individuals, families and community groups seeking assistance and support.
Rural Family Support
The Family Support program focuses on empowering families to provide the best possible care for their children. The service provides families with advice, information, referrals and ongoing emotional support.
The Active Seniors Program is a new program within Care Balonne that works with our senior Community members to reduce social isolation and encourage active lifestyles.
We are in the middle of creating a memories book for our residents in the Balonne Shire Community, we acknowledge the impact that Covid-19 has placed on the social engagement of our isolated senior residents, and we wish to capture this period of their life. The intent of the book is to also share their life stories and print a coffee table book to be collected for future generations.
