Child, Youth & Family Services

All children deserve to have the best possible start in life. If a crisis is developing in a family, CatholicCare understands the importance of “getting in early” to prevent the situation from escalating.

All children deserve to have the best possible start in life. If a crisis is developing in a family, CatholicCare understands the importance of “getting in early” to prevent the situation from escalating.

We have specialised services and a support network to address any issue. Our aim is to improve the relationships between parents and their children and keep those relationships functional. We like to think of it as “helping you get upstream”. 

CatholicCare offers:

Our multiple services are integrated, and our clinical services are unmatched. There is no “wrong door” at CatholicCare.

Brighter Futures works alongside families facing challenges. This program provides support and specialised child protection intervention services for expecting families, or with children under nine years of age.

We have a fatherhood worker, and programs to work alongside dads. Our Early Intervention Placement Prevention Program aims to de-escalate issues for adolescents and their families.

CatholicCare’s wide-ranging and proactive network offers support for:

  • children entering foster care
  • the foster care family
  • 16 and 17-year-old youths moving into independent living arrangements
  • 18 to 26-year-olds who have been part of out-of-home care
  • people involved with adoption.
