Relationships Australia SA services are based on an understanding of the social determinants of health and operate within a public health framework. Our services are designed to reduce risks to individual and family safety and strengthen protective factors, enabling improved wellbeing and social cohesion. Our services support change by: 1. Developing people’s personal skills to conduct positive individual, family and community relationships and improve health and wellbeing; 2. Creating supportive environments that encourage individuals and communities to address conflicts and solve problems; 3. Strengthening community action using education that enables the wisdom gained from lived experience to positively impact individual and community wellbeing; 4. Delivering collaborative services that build genuine multidisciplinary networks and ensure coordinated service delivery; and 5. Contributing to the development of public policy and service initiatives that are evidence-informed and client-focused. Our Theory of Change | Relationships Australia SA Annual Report 2016 -2017 11
