Support

Access to our Chaplaincy service along with mental health, disability and homelessness support.

Disability and NDIS

Let’s get the most out of life.

 

We all have hopes and dreams. We may not always say it out loud, but we like to imagine the possibilities of what our future might hold.

 

Living with a disability doesn’t mean letting go of those hopes and dreams. Our Disability Care Team can meet you right where you are and work with you to build a better future.

 

If you have been dreaming about trying something new, learning a different skill or broadening your social horizons, we would be delighted to help you with that too!

 

Just give us a call on 8273 7190 or fill out our online Disability General Enquiry Form

Homelessness

A warm welcome and a safe place.

Young South Australians struggling with life have been coming to us for help for more than 20 years.  Many are working through complex issues of family breakdowns, domestic violence, homelessness, drug addiction and more.

 

Despite these obstacles, we can see the potential in every young person and our Inner Southern Youth Homelessness Service provides support to those aged 15 – 25 who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.

 

If this is you, our aim is not just to meet your immediate residential needs but to help you overcome the issues that caused your homelessness. If you have recently become homeless, facilitating family communication or reconnecting you back to other close family members is often an effective solution.

 

Whichever way it works best, our primary focus is for you to find and maintain long term stable housing. You may be able to access interim accommodation for up to 18 months, while our caring and professional staff support you to make positive choices and help you prepare for transition to permanent housing.

Mental Health

Healthy Minds for Children, Young People & their Families.

Healthy minds and healthy families are so important for young people. Experience and research has told us that getting in early can make a significant difference that’s why our Family Mental Health Support Services are focused on early intervention and prevention of mental illness in children and young people from 0-18 years old.

 

In an ideal world, kids would be running around playing with friends, without a worry in the world. But life has its struggles and things can get tough for families, especially during periods of transition such as the birth of a new baby, breakdown of relationships, or death of a family member.

 

As a family, you might need support to help your children manage issues such as bullying, eating or sleeping problems, school transitions and teenager or adolescent related issues.

Refugees

Let’s find a way to make everyone feel welcome.

 

Support for minors
A child is a child; needing their parents; longing to feel safe. Sadly, this is not always possible. A number of children arrive in Australia alone after they have been separated from their parents in their home countries or at refugee camps.

 

This heartbreaking situation warrants a caring solution and our Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors (UHM) Program is the way we do this. As the sole provider of this service in South Australia, we organise residential care and support services to minors on certain visas in Australia who are under the guardianship of the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection.

 

We support these children until they are 18 and ready to move out into the world with new skills and independence.

 

For more information, please contact us on (08) 8273 7100.

Chaplaincy

Enriching the wellbeing of our clients and staff is a responsibility we take very seriously.  Our Chaplains empower people to talk through the big questions of purpose, meaning, hope and faith, which often arise as a result of difficult times.

 

Baptist Care SA provides a Chaplaincy service in prisons, public hospitals, community health centres and to Baptist Care SA staff and volunteers.

 

Our chaplains are present at the following locations:

  • Adelaide Remand Centre (Correctional Services)
  • RSL Veterans Home
  • Gawler Health Service (SA Health)
  • Disability SA
  • Baptist Care SA

 

Chaplaincy is not a counselling or mental health service and referrals to medical professional are made where necessary and appropriate.

 

Our Coordinating Chaplain provides oversight and support of Baptist Chaplaincy by representing the Baptist Churches of South Australia on the board of Chaplaincy Services SA and through the pastoral support of Baptist Chaplains.

 

For more information on Chaplaincy please contact Ian Warner, Coordinating Chaplain on (08) 8273 7173 or 0409 582 134.
