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.
Updated in 2010 by the South Australian Council of Churches, this handbook was developed as a Christian community response to domestic violence within the community.
It is a 'field manual' of basic information - a reminder to assist those in the church to detect and respond to domestic violence.
Lutheran Community Care is accredited at Certificate Level of the Australian Service Excellence Standards
