One of Baptist Care SA’s strategic priorities is to develop and implement a Practice Framework with the aim of raising practice standards and strengthening the quality of work across our service delivery programs.
Our Practice Framework represents another step forward in Baptist Care SA’s development. Built after a lengthy consultation and co-design process with our staff, it reflects aspirations, values, methods and theories that are important to them. It also provides the structure, method and discipline to ensure that when we work with our clients, families and communities, we do so in the most effective way.

The core theories and methods that guide our practice in this framework are centred on the importance of people. Our practice is built around relationships, being holistic and client centred, building on people’s strengths, working in culturally responsive ways, recognising the impact of previous trauma and seeing family, friends, community and other agencies as all having a role to play in providing help and support.

There is also an internal video that includes more specific information about our relationships with our clients available on the Practice Framework sharepoint site.
Thanks to all the Baptist Care SA staff who have been instrumental in the development and introduction of this important framework.
