Caritas Australia is Hope in Action

As the international aid and development agency of the Australian Catholic Church, we are driven by social justice and the dignity of every person. We work with local communities in Australia and overseas, listening to concerns, assessing needs and working with partners on locally-led development programs. With hope, support and compassion at the core of what we do, we work towards a world where all people may thrive.

Working together for justice and dignity. Walking together in hope. Building together a thriving future for all.

Walk with us towards a world of hope.
