Who We Are


In response to unmet needs within the community, Liberty Community Connect (formerly Nerang Community Respite Care Association) was established in 1989 by Father Pat Tynan of St Brigid’s Catholic Parish. Providing community services throughout the Gold Coast for over 25 years. Liberty is passionate about the wellbeing of people who have a disability, older people , their carers and their families. We ensure their individual needs are met through choice and opportunities that empower them to be socially connected and to make the most of their abilities.

Our aim is to inspire people to live a life of health and wellbeing by providing support based on their individual needs. We support them to be socially connected within the Gold Coast community, and to remain living independently in their homes.

In our 25th year as an organisation, we now provide close to 20 flexible programs to our client base of over 500 people and employ a passionate and dedicated team of 40 staff and 40 volunteers. Liberty is an approved provider of Home Care and Flexible Care services as defined by the Aged Care Act of 1997.

Liberty is a not for profit registered charity.  We receive funding from both the Department of Health  and the Department of Community Services (DoCS). We are also thankful for the grants, donations, bequests and sponsorships we receive.

We are about doing all that we can to make sure all people are Livin’ Well.

At other centres I felt really ‘old.’ I feel much more at ease here”
