CatholicCare Melbourne Gippsland is excited to share the news that we will be merging with Centacare Ballarat and CatholicCare Sandhurst to become a new entity: CatholicCare Victoria.
This amalgamation of the social service agencies of the four Catholic dioceses in Victoria will:
- enhance and strengthen service provision to the vulnerable and marginalised, facilitating improved coordination and greater choice for clients
- amplify scale and reach to sustain and grow services, and enable a greater focus on addressing the root causes of poverty and injustice
- become a model of high performing Catholic mission
- continue the strong commitment to local communities
The new entity will be established on 1 January 2021. The agencies are working through an integration process to align organisational structures, programs and systems.
“It is fitting that in our 85th anniversary year, we are announcing this important new chapter for CatholicCare,” said Netty Horton, CEO of CatholicCare Melbourne Gippsland.
“As we transition to CatholicCare Victoria, it will definitely be business as usual. All service and contact arrangements remain the same and we remain fully committed to helping people to live life to the full.”
“To all our clients, donors, volunteers, funders and community partners; we thank you for your support and we welcome you to join us in this next exciting phase of CatholicCare journey.”
