On 1 July 2018, St Agnes’ Parish established a new legal and governance structure to deliver its services. All of St Agnes’ Parish services are delivered under one of two different trading names: St Agnes’ Care & Lifestyle or St Agnes’ Assist.
The name St Agnes’ Care & Lifestyle comprises the service areas; Catholic Care of the Aged and Centacare. St Agnes’ Care & Lifestyle was established by St Agnes’ Parish to better meet contemporary business and regulatory expectations and understanding. All other services areas are included under the name and ABN of St Agnes’ Assist.
The Parish Priest is the Member (shareholder) of both entities and is supported by a board of directors appointed by the Parish Priest. In accordance with Corporations law, a constitution has been adopted and both St Agnes’ Care & Lifestyle and St Agnes’ Assist are registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC).
