Our Mission / Objective

We are an internationally accredited organisation that delivers innovative, quality and person centred services to people and communities across South Australia. Since our establishment in 1919, our vision has always been to create a compassionate, respectful and just community in which all people can participate and flourish.

We boast a diverse portfolio of services and offer support and solutions across many disciplines and sectors including aged care, community welfare and employment services.

Every year our 923 staff and a network of over 150 volunteers support more than 16,000 people including the elderly, vulnerable young people, adults and families, people with mental health disabilities, individuals seeking employment and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our clients always remain at the centre of what we do.

Projects in Progress

At UnitingCare Wesley Port Adelaide, we have a diverse range of ongoing programs and services to support people in the community including:

Youth and Family

We support people facing life challenges including community disadvantage, social isolation, unemployment, family breakdown, disengagement from school, inadequate housing and financial distress. We offer emergency and financial assistance, counselling and case management services, educational courses, and other programs for individuals, families, children and young people.

Homelessness & Housing

We support people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by providing an integrated approach to case management and housing options.
We offer early intervention, intensive tenancy, housing and accommodation support, case management and counselling, emergency and outreach assistance, life skills advice, and children’s specialist services.
We can also provide affordable and appropriate accommodation options including units, townhouses, free standing and semi-detached houses for low income families, young people, refugees and people with mental health related disabilities.

Mental Health

We support people living with a mental illness to live independently, manage their recovery and stay healthy. We offer holistic services, psychosocial rehabilitation support, housing and social support, life skills advice, case management, and counselling.

Employment

We support people living with a disability and members of long-term jobless families to find and maintain meaningful employment and participate in the community. We offer intensive support and assistance, employment opportunities, work experience placements, job skills preparation, career planning, training assessment, and ongoing individual and employment support.

Aged Care

We provide flexible care options that promote inclusion, respect and participation for all people in seven aged care homes located north and west of Adelaide. Transitional Care Packages, Home Care Programs and Retirement Living options are also available to support people to live independently for as long as possible.

Number of Employees

The high quality support we offer to people in the community would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our employees and volunteers. As at 30 June 2016, we employed 923 people and had 157 volunteers working across community services and aged care.
