Community relationships form the backbone of Flinders University Rural and Remote Health SA. We live, work, play and learn in rural communities across South Australia and are passionate about providing high quality education, research and health care solutions.
Across all of our regions:
At Flinders University Rural and Remote Health SA our education and research aims to equip the next generation of leaders and innovators with the skills, commitment and vision to protect vulnerable communities and advance health outcomes.
We strive to improve the health of our geographically and culturally diverse communities through the transformative power of education, research and health care. Strong partnerships with our communities are fundamental to educating our students, ensuring our graduates are ready to serve them. Our Community Partnership Grant is one way that we are investing in local rural communities. Grants of up to $2,000 will be funded to support projects that benefit local rural and regional communities within the local government areas of Flinders University Rural and Remote Health SA located campuses. Regions include the Riverland, Barossa Valley, Hills Mallee Fleurieu and Greater Green Triangle.
The 2021 grant round assisted in supporting diverse community projects across the state including a youth mentorship program, teaching young families to prepare meals with fresh food, community kitchen meals for the homeless, a mental health walk, and a forum and connecting primary school children with aged care home residents.
