CatholicCare is the social services agency of the Archdiocese of Sydney. Every day we walk in solidarity with individuals, families and communities to realise our vision of a society in which we all feel valued and supported.
Our greatest wish is to see people in our communities thrive.
We strive to realise this vision by providing a broad range of social services built on a mission of valuing dignity, strengthening families and connecting communities.
CatholicCare services help people to live and thrive at every age, irrespective of beliefs and abilities. We help Sydney families with relationships, parenting, ageing, disabilities, addictions and mental health concerns.
