Mission Statement

Our commitment is to work in a way which respects people’s ability to determine their own lives, irrespective of age, gender, ability, race, religious conviction or economic circumstances To honour The Treaty of Waitangi

Nau Mai Haere Mai – Greetings and Welcome!

At the heart of the Christian message and the Catholic tradition is a commitment to providing Social Services for people in difficulty regardless of their spiritual belief. Catholic Social Services, a member of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland provides professional services which can include counselling and social work. The counselling focuses on work with families, couples and individuals to do with relationships. The social work programme focuses on a wide range of family or relationship issues. While agencies can make referrals we ask that people contact us directly. Our team are trained professionals.

Thank you to our supporters

We are thankful to the many friends who have donated food, clothing, household items and time as volunteers.  Without this support, this agency would have found it difficult to offer services to people, families and children in desperate need. We thank our funders for their generous support of our programmes and projects.
