Community Wellbeing

Community wellbeing is about feeling safe and secure in your environment so that you can actively engage in your communities. The many different communities to which you are a part (neighbourhood, work, volunteer, parent, study, sport or school) can all provide a sense of belonging and support. The more you engage with those communities, the greater sense of purpose and accomplishment you may feel.

Here are some programs and initiatives that UniSA staff may wish to take part in to enhance their community wellbeing:
