Community Connections provides short-term support for up to 12 weeks and helps connect people with longer-term support where required. Community Connections supports people to increase their independence in the home and to build stronger social and community connections.
Community Connections is open to people who live in South Australia, and:
- are aged 18 to 64 (18 to 49 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples)
- need short-term support to improve independence or to develop or maintain connections with support networks
- are not eligible for federal programs such as National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and My Aged Care
Support through the Community Connections Program may include helping people to get involved in local community activities, find new support groups, meet their neighbours, or get some extra help at home. To find out more about this program please ring Lutheran Care 8562 2688
