About Us
Welfare Services

CatholicCare Tasmania delivers a broad range of specialised and professional support, counselling, accommodation, emergency, advocacy, education and training services throughout Tasmania.

Its particular strength is in the family centred approach, recognising that whatever impacts on a family impacts on the children in specific ways.


It recognises that children can be major casualties in family disruption and that listening to the voice of children impacts on the long-term consequence for all involved in resolving family conflict.

Services are available to all without discrimination on the basis of age, gender, race religion, physical disability, marital or social status
