Jesuit Social Services

We provide practical programs and advocacy across four main areas: •Justice and crime prevention – for people involved with the criminal justice system •Mental health and wellbeing – for people with multiple and complex needs and those affected by trauma, suicide, and complex bereavement •Settlement and community building – for recently arrived immigrants, refugees, displaced people and disadvantaged communities •Education, training and employment – for people with barriers to sustainable employment. We work at the hard end of social justice with some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. We partner with community to support those most in need, and go where hope is needed most. We promote education, lifelong learning and capacity building in all our activities.
