About CatholicCare

For work or support, CatholicCare is for everybody.

CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning is a not-for-profit organisation and an agency of the Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. We offer whole-of-community support and empowerment options to those in need regardless of religion, age, gender, physical and intellectual capacity, or ethnicity.

Being responsive to local needs is at the heart of everything we do. We work with people to address issues from an early intervention perspective. Our programs are a combination of fee-for-service and government-funded. The entirety of our support network and ability to cross-refer sets us apart.

Our care services come under the broad areas of: 

Community Engagement encompassing the Taree Community Kitchen.

Mental Wellbeing incorporating Counselling, Clinical Assessments, Employee Assistance Program and Adoptions Counselling.

Child, Youth and Family Services including Brighter Futures, Early Intervention Placement Prevention Program, Integrated Family and Domestic Violence Strategy, Foster Care, Restorations, Open Adoptions, Guardianship and Open Adoptions, Relative or kinship care, Supported Independent Living and After Care.

Disability Services offering assistance with Supported Accommodation, Co-ordination of Support, Community Access and the NDIS.

CatholicCare’s progressive approach is customer centred. We support people to define their goals, identify their strengths and access resources by developing collaborative, open, honest and transparent relationships with customers in a multidisciplinary environment.

Our staff are local, passionate and professional. As an organisation we are flexible in our service delivery, with a skill set and capacity to deliver. We understand our community through active feedback and engagement strategies, therefore allowing us to respond based on identified community need. As a continuous improvement organisation we use current, evidence-based practices to inform our program delivery models and seek new and innovative ways to benefit the community we serve.
