Community Links Program

The Community Links Program supports adults to live independently in their community. To be eligible they are to be aged, living with a disability, or mental health issue and are experiencing social isolation and live in the Southern Metropolitan area of Adelaide.

The aim of the program is to reconnect people to their local communities by socializing and participating in social and recreational activities. To assist us in working towards this aim, we have the following programs available (all participants are required to be aged 18 years and over),
