Baptist community service agencies have been working together since 1990. The purpose of this collaboration was to share information, resources and research, to speak as a unified voice on policy issues, and to connect members to a national network of Baptist agencies.
In the years that followed, an annual conference program was established to bring together key leaders from the Baptist Care family. Circles of Excellence were established to facilitate communication and collaboration in specific areas of practice.
In 2014, a permanent national office was established in Canberra and an Executive Director appointed. This ensured an ongoing presence in the nation's capital to maintain relationships with key decision-makers, and to work alongside other peak bodies participating in the national policy and political debate.
