Uniting Communities - unitingcommunities.org
Uniting Communities is an inclusive not-for-profit organisation working alongside more than 30,000 South Australians each year as they strive for bright futures and great lives. We value diversity and are committed to providing respectful, accessible services to all.
Uniting Communities seeks to reduce inequality and improve wellbeing for all who are striving to overcome disadvantage – individuals, their families and communities – so that they can realise their potential and live the best lives they can. We do this in a way that is non-judgemental, generous and supportive; that embrace diversity; and that values and promotes fairness, justice and the benefits of strong communities.
Our service delivery, advocacy and community building activities are central to achieving this.
We offer more than 90 services to support the needs of both individuals and our community, across a range of areas. These include mental health and counselling; residential aged care and support for independent living; housing crisis and emergency support; disability services; services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people; energy efficiency services; financial wellbeing; drug and alcohol counselling; family relationships; and respite and carer support.

“Uniting Communities is thrilled to be part of the Thriving Communities Partnership. We look forward to working with others in the South Australian community to collaborate in developing better ways of supporting vulnerable customers to better be able to manage their utilities and financial situation in ways that are dignified and respectful, with a focus on making accessing hardship support as easy and as supportive as possible for consumers.”
