CatholicCare is the social care agency of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Broken Bay

We walk alongside you and recognise that you are the expert in your own life. We ensure you have a say in the support you receive and we empower you to make decisions that will help you to live a positive and fulfilling life. With 35 years experience serving the communities of Northern Sydney, the Northern Beaches and the Central Coast, we deliver a wide range of services to improve individual, family and community wellbeing. 

Whilst we are a Catholic agency, we provide services to the entire community, regardless of religion, circumstance, ethnicity, economic situation, age, gender or ability. We are guided by our mission, vision and values which ensure that we care, we listen and that we focus on you. Our work is underpinned by the principles of dignity, respect and equity for all, walking alongside each person in the way they choose. Our door is open – come on in and find out how we can help.
