The Deputy Premier of NSW, John Barilaro, and Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, joined with CatholicCare staff and volunteers to celebrate the Taree Community Kitchen volunteers serving the 10,000th meal since CatholicCare took over the operation in 2015.
On Friday 27 October CatholicCare hosted a lunch at Harrigan’s Irish Pub in the beautiful Hunter Valley, as a way to say ‘thank you’ to our wonderful foster carers who provide a safe and secure home to vulnerable children and young people.
CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning’s Acting Director, Gary Christensen, is encouraging people who have a disability and are interested in moving into modern, supported accommodation to register their interest early to avoid disappointment.
“Foster carers are very special people who provide love, support and stability to some of our country’s most vulnerable children,” Gary Christensen, Acting Director of CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning, said on the eve of NSW Foster Care Week.
CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning has launched a video to help the community better understand what the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is, and how it’s transforming the lives of people living with a disability.
