Since 1859, the Catholic Children's Society (Westminster) has been reaching out to disadvantaged children and families. From "rescuing" orphans at risk of starving, losing their Catholic faith and the orphanages of yesteryear, to our counselling services and family centres today, we have kept the interests of the child at the heart of all the work that we do. We have evolved our services to meet the needs of the times, while never losing sight of the fact that children thrive best in families. The Society now concentrates on providing services and support to families of all races and faiths who are experiencing problems that affect their health, happiness and the stability of the family unit.
