Pinangba is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-led service delivery arm of UnitingCare. The foundations of Pinangba are built from our cultural identity and strong community relationships and partnerships.
We deliver culturally informed services through innovative service delivery to progress Self-Determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through unique and holistic care, prioritising social justice to nurture physical, mental and spiritual healing.
Pinangba operates as a branch of UnitingCare working collaboratively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Queensland. We deliver a range of services including aged care, respite, family therapy and drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
We believe that the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander people has led us to service these communities in partnership with UnitingCare agencies, such as Blue Care, in search of healing through truth and justice.
Pinangba services operate in many communities across Queensland from the Torres Strait Islands to Cherbourg.
