The Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle represents the Catholic Church in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter and Manning areas. It was formed out of the Sydney Archdiocese in 1847. Since 1965 the Diocese has delivered social welfare programmes and services to care leavers through CatholicCare Hunter-Manning Social Services, which until 2011 was called Centacare Newcastle.
