We are the social care agency of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Broken Bay.
As a person-centred organisation, CatholicCare has people at its heart. We believe you should have a
say in the support you receive and we empower you to make decisions that will enable you to live a
positive and fulfilling life.
Whilst we are a Catholic agency, we provide services to the entire community, regardless of religion, circumstance, ethnicity, economic situation, age, gender or ability.
With funding from both the Federal and New South Wales governments and a workforce of more than 600 people, we provide disability services and NDIS support, foster care and out of home care services as well as children’s services including early learning and care centres, out of school hours care, vacation care,
family day care and in home care.
We also have Family Centres offering counselling, domestic and family violence support, family dispute resolution and mediation, parenting and relationship education, emergency relief and housing and homelessness support. We also provide hospital chaplaincy, pastoral care, crisis support … and much more.
Belonging to the larger network of Catholic Social Services Australia (CSSA), we provide services to 26,000+ children, young people, individuals and families on the NSW Central Coast, Northern Sydney and Northern Beaches, and have been doing so since 1987. We currently deliver around $38 million of care annually.
“We walk alongside people to find and build solutions to their needs, to deliver evidence-based services and to do so with commitment regardless of the difficulties faced, to live out our gospel values, serving in justice and love.”
