May 10, 2017

Tuesday, 2 May 2017 saw the opening of Marymead and CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn’s new office, where together, they will be providing a wide range of community services to the people of the Southern Tablelands.

The Archbishop of Canberra and Goulburn, Christopher Prowse said he was thrilled to bless the new office saying, “It is wonderful to see the coming together of these two Catholic agencies to deliver much needed services to a large and important part of our Archdiocese.”

The CEO of Marymead, Ms Camilla Rowland said this new shared space will offer so much more for the community, “The Goulburn office is effectively a one-stop shop providing wrap around services to the local community. By teaming up with CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn, we are increasing our capacity to deliver services, particularly to those with more complex needs.”

Marymead, together with CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn, are offering the following services for the extended Goulburn community;

  • Foster care
  • Disability services (NDIS)
  • Family referral service
  • Early intervention services
  • Counselling & psychological services
  • Pre & post separation support
  • Domestic family violence support for men
  • Aged care

The CEO of CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn, Ms Anne Kirwan said the timing of this joint venture encapsulates their strength of commitment to supporting people in the Archdiocese, “The vision and mission of CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn and Marymead has always been to be there for our most vulnerable in the community. The fact that Marymead is celebrating 50 years of service this year and we are celebrating 60 years is a true testament of our relationship with the community and their trust in us to be there for them.”

This new shared space is open to the public and can be located at 32 Verner Street Goulburn. To book an appointment or to discuss the services more broadly, please call (02) 4827 1600 or visit the websites www.catholiccare.cg.org.au or www.marymead.org.au .
