Out of Home Care
CatholicCare provides Out of Home Care (OOHC) services for children and young people from 0 – 18 years of age who are not able to live with their own families.
CatholicCare’s services for children and young people in Out of Home Care provide essential support, care and stability for children and young people affected by family breakdown, to enable them to recover and thrive.
CatholicCare provides foster care through our network of experienced family carers, residential homes, access to therapy and counselling and in-home support to reduce the risk of family breakdown. Through our suite of services, and the dedication of our specialist support teams and foster carers, we are changing the lives of children and young people for the better.
Our Out of Home Care services provide short term to long term accommodation and foster care placements and transition to independent living for young people leaving care.
The personal growth and development of many of the children and young people in our care has been interrupted by significant and often traumatic issues in their lives. We provide health, education, living skills and community support. We actively encourage the healthy development of children and young people through their adolescent years and beyond.
