About Us Banner

We are the social care and support agency of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Broken Bay

CatholicCare has people at its heart. We walk alongside you. We 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.

Whilst we are a Catholic agency, we provide services to the entire community, regardless of religion, circumstance, ethnicity, economic situation, age, gender or ability.

Guiding all of our work are our mission, vision and values which ensure that we care, we listen and that we focus on you. We prioritise safety and security. You can trust us. Through our work, we live out the Gospel, underpinned by the principles of dignity, respect and equity for all, walking alongside each person in the way they choose.

We walk alongside people to find solutions to their needs, to deliver quality services with commitment regardless of the difficulties faced, to live out our gospel values, serving in justice and love.

With funding from both the Federal and New South Wales Governments and a workforce of more than 700 people, we provide a range of services including:

  • Disability and NDIS supports
  • Foster care and residential care services supporting children and young people who are unable to live with their families
  • Services to support children to have the brightest futures possible including early learning and care centres, out of school hours care and vacation care services
  • For those facing a crisis or crossroad in life, our Family Centres offer counselling, domestic and family violence support, family dispute resolution and mediation, parenting education, emergency relief and housing and homelessness supports. We also provide hospital chaplaincy and pastoral care help, crisis support … and much more.

We are here to help. Please reach out to us at anytime.
