On Wednesday 18 May, Sonder hosted its 5th Closing the Gap Day event supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals to learn about services available across SA that can support their health, wellbeing and other areas of their lives.
The Toward Home Alliance was proud to be involved in this event that was attended by 1,500 people, families and school groups.
The Toward Home team shared information and promoted services including Wardli-ana, a specialised service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
The Wardli-ana service works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to explore housing options, safely return to Country and connect with community.
Dustin, Team Leader and Registered Nurse who works within the Toward Home Wellbeing team at Sonder said, “the event was a great opportunity for us to talk directly with community and let them know that we are here for them.”
Lutheran Care, Baptist Care SA, The Salvation Army, Mission Australia and Sonder are working together to provide Toward Home services for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness across the Adelaide CBD, southern metro and hills region.
