UnitingSA
Together we can

We turn our values into actions

UnitingSA is a not-for-profit organisation all about respect, compassion and justice. With a long and proud history of building stronger communities, our can-do attitude is dedicated to supporting South Australians.

Established in 1919, we now help over 10,000 people every year.

More than 1,000 employees and volunteers deliver a diverse range of programs across aged care, community, disability, mental health, child development and employment. Every aspect of what we do is unified by determination, a respect for everyone’s unique worth and a passion for empowering people.

Individuals, older people, youth, adults and families, people facing mental health issues, people with disabilities, and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are just some of the people we communicate with every day.

Together we seek opportunities to enliven communities, enrich lives and improve wellbeing.

We strive to stand alongside every individual and face the world as one.

At UnitingSA, together we can.

“I was feeling depressed and anxious before coming to Taperoo Community Centre and now I feel as though I belong for the first time in my life. The classes have helped me believe in myself and that I am capable of learning.”
