Our Founding Ethos
Caritas Care today offers a diverse range of projects and services to children and adults of all faiths and none across the North West to help people to lead better lives.
The charity started its life as the social welfare arm of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, and later developed into an independent charity.

Our work today continues to be inspired by Catholic Social Teaching, our founding ethos, which values the dignity, freedom, independence and worth of every person and community, seeking justice and equality to promote the wellbeing and flourishing of every member of our human family.
Today these principles and values of social action are alive in all our work, in services and projects which have adapted to respond to the changing needs of our society.
