Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start a Care Program in my parish?
- In most cases you will need a small group of people who are interested in setting up and coordinating a Care Program. Catholic Outreach can provide assistance by explaining how Care Programs operate and training Coordinators and Volunteers. You will also need approval from your Parish Priest to set up a Care Program.
How do I become a volunteer?
- To become a volunteer of the Care Program in your Parish contact the Coordinator (usually listed in the parish bulletin) or speak to the Parish Priest who will put you in touch with a Coordinator.
What do I do if I’m offered money?
- If you are offered money for a service explain to the person that the work is provided on a voluntary basis. If the client persists thank them for the donation and give it to the Coordinator who asked you to do the job.
How do I get help?
- If you are in need of help please contact the Coordinator listed in the parish bulletin or the parish office.
