Family, Youth & Children Support Services Banner

We support you to be healthy, safe and connected

CatholicCare provides an extensive range of integrated and holistic services to support individuals, families, children and young people who may be experiencing difficulties. We are embedded in our local communities with capacity to provide support, advice and referrals.

Our support services are incredibly diverse and we open to all. Our primary goal is to support and empower you, or a loved one, to overcome any challenges and to improve wellbeing. We provide a non-judgmental and supportive environment to everyone we work with.

You might contact us to find out more about our support groups, and what we offer in the case work space. You, or someone you know might be feeling vulnerable or stressed and unsure what help is available. We can talk you through all the options we offer, and we are also very well connected to other organisations who we can refer you to if needed.

If you are experiencing issues or concerns including financial, parenting, substance use, mental health, domestic and family violence, housing and homelessness – we can help. We provide both home and centre based supports and our Family Centres are located in Artarmon, Brookvale, Waitara and on the Central Coast at Tuggerah.
