Community Connections Program
AnglicareSA is the Regional Coordinating Partner for Community Connections Program for people living in Adelaide’s North or South. Through this program we provide support to people in these regions to increase their independence and help build stronger social and community connections.
Community Connections is funded by the SA State Government Department of Human Services.
Who can access this service?
People living in Adelaide’s North or South who:
- are aged 18 to 64 years old (or 18 to 49 years old for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples)
- need short-term support to improve independence or to build or stay connected with support networks
- are not eligible for federal programs such as National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or My Aged Care.
How we can help:
Community Connections provides short-term support for up to 12 weeks and helps connect people with longer-term support where needed.
Support through the Community Connections Program may include helping people to get involved in local community activities, find new support groups, set some personal goals and access information and referrals for other services as needed.
Priority will be given to:
- unpaid carers
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- people from new and emerging culturally and linguistically diverse communities
- people who are financially disadvantaged
- people living in communities of persistent or location-based disadvantage.
