Bishop's Message

CatholicCare NT was established by the Diocese of Darwin in 1993 responding to a need for professional counselling services for families in Darwin and Alice Springs.
Over time CatholicCare NT was able to respond to a broader range of issues impacting on families and community, including addictions, family separation, unemployment, men’s programs, mental health and family violence. During this time service delivery has expanded across the whole of the Northern Territory, with now over ten offices throughout the Territory and extensive outreach services.

While the services of CatholicCare NT may have grown in response to need, its values and mission remain as ever, tied to the inspiration of a missionary church. CatholicCare NT’s strategic plan intentionally places our people and communities, to make difficult situations more manageable and to demonstrate to our clients that they are indeed valued. It outlines strategic priorities enabling CatholicCare NT to continue to build on a successful 22 years of service delivery, making a difference in the lives of Territory families.
