Help CatholicCare’s gift giving tree share the love at Christmas

December 06, 2017 Comments Lizzie Snedden

Christmas.

For many of us it’s a joyous time, celebrating the birth of Christ and encompassing family traditions, celebrations with friends, gift-giving and the sharing of food. However, for the 10,000 children and young people living in Permanency Support Programs (foster care) in Newcastle, the Hunter and Central Coast, it can be a very different story.

How much is too much?

November 01, 2017 Comments Tanya Russell

Q   The end of year is approaching and I have been reflecting on my drinking habits. I feel I drink too much alcohol and would like to address this. I used to enjoy a few glasses of wine on Friday night and then Saturday nights, but over the past year, I find myself drinking every night. I feel this is impacting on my health and my family. How much is too much and how do I begin to make my health a priority again?
