Q.I.T.E. is making a direct and economic difference to our communities by investing in Business Enterprises.

These enterprises are established to meet the needs identified within the community, and/or opportunities identified for disadvantaged target groups. Q.I.T.E. has provided seed funding and on-going subsidies where required, to ensure viable business enterprises can provide opportunities for work experience, skills training, and employment.

Q.I.T.E.'s Business Enterprises include:

  • QT'S Early Learning Centre
  • Passenger Transport Service servicing farmers
  • Community pantries in Atherton, Mareeba, Innisfail, Tully, Cairns, and Ravenshoe.

Q.I.T.E. proudly represents the community on local, regional and national issues relating to training, employment and social inclusion.

Q.I.T.E. has been part of the Tablelands and Cairns region for over 30 years and we work consistently to build and maintain positive pro-active relationships with other service providers, government agencies and local government.

At the forefront of our philosophy and strategic planning is community development. This has also resulted in Q.I.T.E. providing services such as:

  • Farm and environment based horticulture programs
  • Life coaching programs
  • Youth programs
  • Adult literacy and numeracy
  • Indigenous programs.

Our commitment to community collaboration is reflected in our organization's investment in staff to work and build strong networks in:

  • local community response groups
  • homelessness and affordable housing
  • social/community planning/steering committees
  • indigenous forums, workshops and response groups
  • aged and seniors forums
