Better Practice Project

The Better Practice Project, funded by Home and Community Care, 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 The Project 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 Home and Community Care target groups.

Our Key Goal

The key goal for the Project is to ensure that people remain central to the essence of the work that the Project is doing in partnership with agencies. The Project therefore wants to engage with others who have shown an understanding of and commitment to the values that underpin it. The Project is looking for ways to be a more useful and available resource for managers and staff as they grapple with the tension between keeping a focus on people and the many other demands that overtake their time and attention.
