History

Established in 1991 Footprints in Brisbane Inc. (Footprints) has been providing services to the north Brisbane community for 20 years. Previously known as New Farm Community Options the organisation was incorporated in 1995 and changed its name to Footprints in Brisbane Inc. in 2005.  Footprints is recognised for its high level of expertise in working with people with complex needs and has focused on the development of services for older persons and younger people with a disability who are socially and financially disadvantaged, people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and those with mental illness.

Over the past 20 years, program growth has been in direct response to local community needs with increasing focus on the most marginalised. This growth has paralleled changes in the inner Brisbane neighbourhood demographics that have seen an increase in affordable social housing alongside urban renewal; making it one of the most expensive areas in Brisbane for private rental and purchase with the highest concentration in Brisbane of homeless persons and shared accommodation (boarding houses and hostels).
