Western Linkages is a collaborative project that was established in 2000 by a group of community service providers in Western Adelaide. The project’s role is to facilitate reform, networking, engagement and collaboration across community service providers that work with Commonwealth funded aged care eligible clients* in the Western Adelaide metropolitan region.
Western Linkages is auspiced by Domiciliary Care, a division of the SA Government Department for Communities and Social Inclusion.
Participation is open to any service provider with an interest in the Western Adelaide region. Participation can range from simply being on the mailout list, to active participation in one of several workgroups.

*Eligible clients are people who are over 65 years of aged or Aboriginal or Torrest Strait Islander over 50 years of age, younger people with a disability and their carers, who live at home and whose capacity for independent living is at risk or who are at risk of premature or inappropriate admission to longterm residential care.
