Strengthening Communities

Good governments care for and support those who need help to get back on their feet and live their best possible life.


We Believe

  • It’s your life – you should be empowered to make decisions and take responsibility for your own life and future
  • Empathy and acceptance are key to helping people overcome hardship
  • Many South Australians will require government support and care at some point in their lives, and they deserve the best quality services during this time
  • It is vital to identify opportunities to help vulnerable South Australians make positive changes in their lives
  • Government should work to remove barriers to equal opportunities wherever they present themselves
  • South Australia needs sustainable, innovative solutions to provide better outcomes for vulnerable members of our community


How we will achieve this together

  • 4.1 Protecting the most vulnerable people in our community, especially children
  • 4.2 Improving services and engaging the non-government sector
  • 4.3 Building resilience and creating more opportunities for vulnerable South Australians
  • 4.4 Ensuring services are provided in a timely and sensitive manner
  • 4.5 Striving for equality and alleviating entrenched disadvantage
  • 4.6 Ensuring individual choice is at the centre of our policies
