Helping our community find support, joy and purpose.

We believe that, no matter who you are, you deserve equality — because we all deserve equality. You deserve social justice because it is right and good. You deserve to be included, and to be part of the human family. You deserve dignity. You deserve a life with opportunities.

We make it our mission to create opportunities for a joyful, purposeful life, for all those who need them.

Parish Refugee Sponsorship

Parishioners from St Bernadette’s at Castle Hill are building on the parish’s long history of supporting refugees by forming a new group to mentor an Afghan refugee family who arrived in Australia following the Taliban’s takeover of their homeland.

The mentoring relationship is part of Catholic Care’s Parish Group Mentorship Program which is a partnership between Catholic Care and Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia (CRSA).

Support for Refugees

Knowing there is somewhere to go when you need a hand can make the world of difference when you’re settling into life in a new country.

Our support for refugees includes everything from counselling and financial advice to helping your kids with their homework, supporting you to learn English and helping you to connect with your community.

Pets and Animal Welfare Support

Fear of knowing if their animals will be safe often stops women from leaving abusive homes.

But Catholic Care’s free horse agistment service for women escaping domestic violence is helping to change that. If you’re experiencing domestic violence and need somewhere safe for your horse, please contact us to find out more.
