CatholicCare Tasmania was formerly known as Centacare Tasmania. The name change was adopted on 1 July 2015 in order to more clearly identify the organisation with the Catholic Church. CatholicCare Tasmania continued Centacare Tasmania's work as the primary social services agency of the Catholic Church in Tasmania. In 2022 CatholicCare Tasmania provided Therapeutic Residential Care to young people aged 12 to 18, ran the Annie Kenney Young Women's Emergency Accommodation Service, ran kinship and foster care programs, and ran a program to facilitate contact between children in out-of-home care and their parents. CatholicCare Tasmania holds a few records relevant to former Catholic homes in Tasmania.
