Better Practice Project

The Better Practice Project (BPP) is funded by Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) and works with a large range of agencies throughout South Australia across the sectors of aged care, disability, mental health, vulnerable adults and ethnic community services.

BPP provides support, information, training, resource development, mentoring and consultation around the review and development of service models, in partnership with these agencies. It articulates a service model that enhances the citizenship, roles and life strengths of the CHSP target groups.

Our Key Goal

The key goal for the Better Practice Project is to ensure that people remain central to the essence of the human service work.

BPP endeavours to to engage with others who have shown an understanding of and commitment to the values that underpin model coherence, an appreciative approach and continuous quality improvement.

BPP is looking for ways to be a more useful and available resource for managers, staff and volunteers, as they grapple with the tension between keeping the focus on people who are at the centre of their care and the changes to systems and approaches to service delivery. All sessions, training and workshops embed models of better practice that focus on independence, well-being, reablement, social connections, maintenance and development of positive relationships & roles and life-long learning and personal development.
