DESCRIPTION

A diocesan Charitable Trust established by Bishop Edward Gaines in 1983. The CCF is managed by a Board of lay people.

Catholic Care Foundation is based on the Gospel message of Love of God and neighbour, to serve those at the margins of our society. We walk alongside organisations, providing not only financial assistance but mentoring and moral support as they develop programmes that care for families and Communities. The Foundation’s ability to make grants is generated from bequests and donations.
