Our heart embraces all. 

Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre is a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome.

Our door is open for all of our community, regardless of their circumstances.

For over 100 years, we have been supporting our community. 

And we will continue to offer that support in ways that place dignity, respect and love at the heart of all we do. 

The issues facing our community are varied and complex.

They span homelessness, domestic violence, social isolation, hunger and food relief, and health.

People may have lost their job, struggled to find a home, or experienced a relationship breakdown.

Whatever the circumstances that brought them to us, we see everyone as a person to be met, not a problem to be solved.  

A place of connection and support 

Each week, we see over 200 people for breakfast and lunch, a hot shower, to use the laundry and connect with social, medical and legal support. 

Baptist Care SA staff and volunteers work together to provide our community with essentials and connection with life-changing services.

Each year,we provide approximately 50,000 free community meals through our WestCare Centre kitchen, as a well as vital access to hot showers and a laundry. 

Hospitality at the WestCare Centre is more than a meal and cup of coffee.

In the sanctuary of our courtyard where our community gathers, our team lend an ear and provide access to services that are the first step towards long term solutions.

 

 

Bringing people together

The issues facing our community are often so confronting they choose to avoid seeking medical care. 

The WestCare Health Service provides our community with equal access to free, culturally safe and trauma-informed care.

Each day, a variety of nurses, GPs, dentists, and optometrists are available, on site. Along with physiotherapists and small gym.
