|We believe in dignity, solidarity and stewardship on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable people.|
Caritas Jersey was formed as a hub of the Catholic Social Action in Jersey reaching out to all sections of the community and touching all aspects of Islands life. Caritas jersey works in partnership with others to achieve justice for all, in all aspect of human life.
Caitas Jersey seeks to promote and when necessary to co-ordinate the work of other Catholic organisations in Jersey. It has formed its own Think Thank on social issues and uses that group to inform itself on current issues and to develop policies and strategies for dealing with those issues. Caritas Jersey has a particular concern for vunerable and particularly vunerable families. It is concern with Common Good and wants to work with the States of Jersey and with all agencies and churches to protect and ensure the Common Good. We would like to work with like-minded agencies to see the eradication of poverty in jersey and we wish to live in harmonious community free from radical hatred and bigotry.
Caritas Jersey is part of the worldwide organisation which is the largest social action network of agencies in the world. We are developing other European bodies, including in particular Caritas Portugal, Caritas Venezuela and Caritas Poland.
