The Anglican Children's Home was opened in Gympie on 13 February 1983 and is operated by Tufnell Residential and Community Care (TRACC). The home provides care for up to four children recently removed from the care of their parents. Large sibling groups can also be accommodated at the specially designed house which is staffed by House Parents assisted by rostered Support Workers. Children remain in the Home for up to three months to allow an assessment to occur so that they can then be placed appropriately either in Foster Care or returned with assistance to their families.
