Our Purpose

Build compassionate communities and great lives.

People are at the heart of all we do. We will work alongside South Australians as they strive for a bright future and great lives, supporting them to overcome adversity and disadvantage. We will do this in a way that is non-judgemental, generous and supportive; that embraces diversity; and that values and promotes fairness, justice and the benefits of strong communities.

Our Values


We stand up for what we believe in; try new things; get uncomfortable; take risks; challenge beliefs and behaviours; and take responsibility for our own behaviours and outcomes.


We are honest in all of our interactions; take responsibility for our actions and impact; apply rigour in our processes, practices and standards; and take initiative.


We are open and non-judgemental; listen to others; seek to understand; embrace differences and individuality; preserve dignity; and are present.


We embrace new ideas and innovation; look for and engage in opportunities; value and invest in learning; fail successfully; and focus on contribution and continuous improvement.


We go beyond collaboration, sacrificing for others and working across boundaries; fostering trust; sharing knowledge and skills; striving for and celebrating collective success; and being kind and respectful.
