Tapa Marnirni-apinthi (Creating Change) - Our Practice Framework 

Our practice framework provides a clear understanding of what underpins our work and informs our work with our clients.

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.

Baptist Care SA, lives, works and walks on Kaurna, Peramangk and Boandik lands. We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the state’s first peoples, recognise their traditional ownership, and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs, deep connection and continued guardianship of land and waters. We value the contributions of Elders past and present, and are committed to learning from those emerging.
