How Community Connections works
Community Connections provides short-term support for up to 12 weeks and helps connect people with longer-term support where required.
The Community Connections Program has a key objective of helping connect people to communities, social networks and services. Support through the Community Connections Program may include helping people to get involved in local community activities, find new support groups, or even meet their neighbours.
Community Connections is available across South Australia, with local Program Partners working with participants to determine the type of support they need to reach their goals.
The Community Connections program is funded by the Government of South Australia.
