PresCare’s Board is dedicated to delivering on its mission as set out in the PresCare constitution – that is, “to provide aged and/or health care and community services to the public irrespective of religious beliefs in a manner which best serves the needs of the community”.
The Board is appointed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland (PCQ) and all Board members are ministers or members of the church. Consisting of three PCQ trustees (moderator, clerk and treasurer) and eight elected members, the Board is responsible for steering our organisation towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure PresCare has adequate resources to advance its mission.
