Lutheran Community Care provides community services on behalf of the Lutheran Church in South Australia and Northern Territory.

We support communities through responding to the needs of individuals and families, community development, learning opportunities, accommodation and support.

Much of our work aims to address poverty and injustice so that those in need are empowered to achieve their full potential.

Our services are based on respect, integrity and compassion. We work with communities to develop efficient and effective ways to respond to individuals and families in need. We embrace all people regardless of language, culture, ethnicity or religion.

Our staff and volunteers walk alongside those in need to provide, not just the necessities of food, clothing and shelter but also support and care.

Adelaide Hills Bushfire

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by the bushfire in the Adelaide Hills. Although news as of 8 January is reporting the majority of the fire is contained, the Adelaide Hills communities will be suffering effects for a significant time to come.

Our staff have been working to ensure emergency relief services are available to those who have lost or had to leave their homes behind. We will continue to provide resources for the recovery efforts in the coming weeks.

In response to specific requests, the Lutheran Church of Australia Disaster and Welfare Fund is receiving donations for the Adelaide Hills communities. To donate to the appeal visit https://donation.lca.org.au/project?id=P21013.
