The Foundation and First Decade of the National Catholic Welfare Committee

Australasian Catholic Record, The
Volume 85 Issue 1 (Jan 2008)

Abstract: The importance of the National Catholic Welfare Committee (NCWC) with particular reference to its response to the 1957 and 1959 divorce bills, the securing of state aid, and in advocating for increased child endowment payments, is demonstrated. The NCWC inspired a transition in welfare policy away from the domain of individual bishops to a national perspective, at the same time it did not dissuade the independently-minded bishops from adopting their own platforms.
