Empowering local people          
FOR local good

At Newlife Care, we believe that everyone deserves access to essential food, regardless of their circumstances. We offer emergency food assistance to those in need, so that they can get through to their next payment.

But that's not all. We provide a range of services to support individuals and families facing challenges in their lives, including those who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness, people with disabilities, and those going through physical, emotional, mental, or financial hardship.

We are also a community development organisation, equipping and mobilising people to make a positive impact in their communities.

If you or someone you know needs our support, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. And if you would like to support our mission, we welcome donations of non-perishable food and personal hygiene items at any time. Your support can make a real difference in the lives of those in need.

Newlife Care grew from the Mission of the former Rev. John Tully (OAM) who started The New Life Ministry at Street Level Incorporated in 1985. The mission counselled people who had drug, alcohol or gambling addictions or difficult personal relationships. The team educated people to avoid such difficulties and trained people in counselling.

The first few years of the mission were spent in a first-floor office on the corner of Cavill and Orchid Avenues, then the Team moved into the office in the grounds of the Clifford Street Uniting Church in Surfers Paradise.When Clifford Street Uniting Church closed they joined with a number of other churches to form Robina-Surfers Paradise Uniting Church, Newlife Ministry at Street Level moved to the current site at 4 Greenwich Court, Robina.

When John (and his wife Annette) retired, the ministry was changed to Newlife Care Inc. and the service was expanded to incorporate a broader range of help and support services. John Tully was awarded with the Order of Australia for his work in addictions and counselling.
