Caritas Diocese of Plymouth shares in the mission of the Catholic Church. We support the network of social action charities and parishes within the Plymouth Diocese, working in partnership with them to help poor, vulnerable and marginalised people. We are also the Diocesan lead for environmental issues. In November 2023, Caritas Diocese of Plymouth became a registered charity no 1205486.


To express Christian love for all people through the practical service of those in need, of all faiths and none, by:

  • Increasing support to those in need
  • Increasing opportunities for volunteering and encounter.
  • Making a greater contribution to the common good of society
  • Enhancing education and formation within the Christian community, helping people appreciate the importance of sharing, respect, and love in the spirit of the Gospel.

The Caritas Plymouth network is a confederation of local Catholic charities and parishes. The network will provide mutual support, strategic direction, and added value. It will also develop social action projects which address local need or unite parishes for the common good of society.  We work particularly closely with the Catholic Children’s Society (Plymouth) and the SVP and you can find out more about that work here.
