Our 2019/20 annual report is now available!

October 14, 2020

Around the world, the year 2019/20 will be remembered as a tragedy, as the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged communities with staggering loss of life – challenging our health, education and social welfare systems and economies. Through this, CatholicCare remained true to its mission – serving in justice and love – bringing hope to those who most desperately need it. This annual report celebrates our extraordinary achievements in a challenging year – a testament to the commitment, compassion and expertise of our team.

We are the social care agency of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Broken Bay – assisting children, young people and adults to live more enriched lives. Last year we provided services to 30,000+ children, young people, individuals and families across our Diocese, and have been doing so since 1987.

We provide:

  • FAMILY CENTRES offering counselling, domestic and family violence support, family dispute resolution and mediation, parenting and relationship education, emergency relief and more
  • CHILDREN’S SERVICES including early learning and care centres, out of school hours care, vacation care and family day care services
  • DISABILITY SERVICES, NDIS SUPPORT & SUPPORT COORDINATION
  • PERMANENCY SUPPORT PROGRAM including foster care and residential care​ services for children and young people
