Our Mission and Values Banner

Our Mission

We support and enrich the lives of individuals and families. We live out the Gospel by walking alongside people to find and build solutions to their needs. We deliver evidence-based services, and do so with commitment, regardless of the difficulties faced. To this mission we bring a long history of service and faith, the resources of dedicated staff, volunteers and partners, a willingness to go beyond essential care, and persistence in supporting justice and wellbeing for all.

Our Vision

We strive for a world where people are safe, well and connected with each other in inclusive communities.

I acknowledge that the ordinary, everyday activities of our staff are, in fact, extraordinary and sacred. I give thanks for the opportunity to carry out Christ's mission to serve the most vulnerable people in our Diocese.

Most Rev Anthony Randazzo, Bishop of Broken Bay
