We are delighted to announce the launch of the first probono allied health clinic in Adelaide to help the homeless, Open Door Health Clinic. Join us for the official Launch:
3rd May 2017
SOS Health Foundation established the first Australian probono physiotherapy clinic in 2013, followed by Brisbane in 2014 and now it’s Adelaide’s turn! This was made possible through a partnership between the SOS Health Foundation, The Salvation Army and University of South Australia and we are excited to be working in collaboration with these great organisations to offer Physiotherapy and Podiatry services to adults in crisis or who are experiencing homelessness, in South Australia.
This is a unique, student led clinic, the first of its kind in Australia, and will open its doors on Wednesday, 12 May. Services will be provided by volunteer clinicians, however the partnership with UniSA provides an opportunity for final year physiotherapy and podiatry students to conduct treatments under supervision as part of their placement program.
The Open Door Health Clinic means more people who are experiencing homelessness or suffering from social poverty will have access to these essential allied health services …because People matter!
