Find out more about the Australian Catholic Housing Alliance in this video interview at the recent #HearHealHope national Catholic social services conference in Melbourne, with Peter Selwood, Executive Director of CentaCare Brisbane and Chris Hall, CEO of MercyCare WA, both of who've worked in the Catholic social services sector for some time and were founding members of the alliance.

One of our member organisations, Villa Maria Catholic Homes, is thrilled to unveil the result of some amazing community generosity. Work to transform the warm-water pool at its specialist school, St Paul’s College, finished mid-February, giving hundreds of children and adults with disabilities a fantastic start to the new year.

As part of the Hearing Healing Hope three-day conference in Melbourne last week, one of the most significant challenges Catholic Social Services Victoria wanted to explore was concerned with parishes. Parishes play an important role in being at the coal face of providing services and support to the wider community; they are often the living sign of the Gospel at work. Dr Bob Dixon, who has recently retired from his position as Director of the Pastoral Research Office of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, hosted the workshop ‘Love thy neighbour: The challenge for parishes’, which looked at the ways parishes contribute to Catholic social action.
 "We are not all born equal. Circumstances not of our own making factor heavily in the opportunity and quality of life we lead" argued Joe Zabar, Director of Strategic Operations and Economic Policy at Catholic Social Services Australia. Joe led a discussion at the recent national Catholic social services conference, Hearing Healing Hope, held in Melbourne from 21-23 February on the topic 'Economics for a Flourishing Society'.
