CatholicCare was formerly known as Centacare Catholic Family Services. The name change was in line with other organisations within Catholic Social Services Australia, the peak body for Catholic community service providers in Australia. The new name was adopted to emphasise the continuing links between these services and the mission work of the Catholic Church. In 2008 there was a press release issued on the CatholicCare website about the name change, titled 'Centacare Sydney Changes Name to CatholicCare'.
