About CatholicCare Sydney
CatholicCare Sydney is the official welfare agency of the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Sydney, delivering more than 140 programs in the areas of ageing, dementia and disability care; employment, education, training and support services; and children, youth and family services.
In accordance with our vision, CatholicCare promotes the dignity, equality and participation of our service users.
The work of CatholicCare is guided by the Catholic tradition of compassion and concern for social justice. Our role is to facilitate the development of individuals, families and communities most in need, through quality services, research and advocacy.
Our services include family and relationship counselling; drug, alcohol and gambling support services; foster care and adoptions; services for children and young persons at risk of physical or emotional harm; mediation and conciliation; marriage preparation; school counselling; employment services; St Patrick’s Institute of Education; training for people with a disability; supported accommodation; respite services; and support services for the aged and people with a disability.
As a person-centred organisation, CatholicCare has people at its heart. People should determine the support they receive and be empowered to make decisions that will enable them to live positive and fulfilling lives. The services provided by CatholicCare are inclusive of the whole community regardless of circumstance, ethnicity, religion, economic situation, age, gender or ability.
CatholicCare is a member of Catholic Social Services Australia.
