Our Team

Baptist Care NT exists to express God's love and we aim to do this by meeting people's needs, whether they be social, emotional, physical or spiritual. We provide a range of services including direct food support for struggling individuals and families, programs to encourage self-sufficiency and community development, and advocacy assistance. This is achieved in partnership with the churches where possible, and the wider community where appropriate.
