You can help change lives for the better.

Your donation gives your neighbours and community connection, love and support when they need it most.

Catholic Care provides welcoming places for everyone in our community to come for practical assistance, information, acceptance, or simply to connect with others.

No matter who they are, where they’re from, or what circumstances life has dealt them, your support means they are never left behind.

Bishop’s Christmas Appeal

Denise* was forced to leave her home and partner because of repeated domestic violence. No matter how hard she tried, 56-year-old Denise missed out on every rental she applied for. Desperate and homeless, she agreed to rent a house that was practically falling apart.

Denise didn’t know what to do, or who to turn to. Thankfully, she was referred to Catholic Care, and no longer had to bear the burden alone. Read Denise’s story here and make a gift to the Bishop’s Christmas Appeal to help end homelessness in our community.

Community Stories

Our clients have faced significant trauma, such as family violence, unemployment, drug misuse, and homelessness. Quite often, these traumatic experiences started in childhood. Their self-esteem can be so low that they can’t see a better outcome for themselves.

 

We work with young mums to break the cycle. We build their trust and confidence and advocate for them so that they and their children have a better future
