Together we can
Make an Impact

Support our Winter Appeal today.

At UnitingSA, demand for our emergency assistance and homelessness services increases during winter as more people reach out for help to ensure they can keep their families safe, warm and healthy.

This year, the need in our community is even greater than usual and we are seeing people who have never needed our help before. The COVID-19 pandemic, an increasingly competitive rental market, rising utility bills and a lack of affordable housing mean more people are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

All it takes is a rent increase, relationship breakdown, illness or an unexpected job loss for someone’s life to plunge into crisis.

Will you help us ensure people in our local community can access food, warmth and basic necessities this winter?

If you are able to, please scroll down to donate to our Winter Appeal today and show someone who is struggling that there are people who care.

How can I help?

We are seeking urgent monetary donations, to help us purchase items of critical need.

By donating to our Winter Appeal you could provide a nutritious, hot meal for someone in need, help us keep the heater on for a family struggling to pay the bills, or provide a warm swag and blanket for someone sleeping rough on a cold night.

Can I make an in-kind donation?

In-kind donations of non-perishable food items, warm beanies and socks, blankets, sleeping bags, toiletries and personal hygiene products are gratefully received at our Emergency Relief Centre (58 Dale Street, Port Adelaide) between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday. You can contact the centre on (08) 8440 2299.

Please note that we can only accept new and unused in-kind donations.

“I was in such a dark place for years and my mental health issues meant I couldn’t see anything straight. With the help of my support worker, I started to feel comfortable in my own skin and now I am even working again. I will always remember how I recovered with the help I received through UnitingSA.”
