About us

CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning is the official social services agency of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.

We are a registered not-for-profit, who has worked with the whole community to deliver support services and programs that meet the needs of children, young people, individuals, and families for over sixty years.


At CatholicCare, we are people-focused and walk alongside those in our community who need a bit of extra support to achieve their goals and live safe and well. To continue the mission of Christ, we offer opportunities for growth, healing and hope to all people.



In line with the principles of Catholic social teaching, the foundation of our work is striving for a world where people are fed, housed, safe, healthy and happy, and have positive relationships in their community.


CatholicCare is an inclusive organisation committed to helping everyone in need across our community, regardless of religion, age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or disability. 


Being responsive to local needs is at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves in our on-the-ground knowledge and building valuable connections for the people we support in every community across our Diocese. The entirety of our support network and our ability to cross-refer is what sets us apart.
