Regional Launch of Services Directory

April 2019 will see the anticipated launch of thirteen online Services Directories that will connect country South Australia people and services. Following initiation of the online services directory concept in the Limestone Coast, a partnership was established between Country SA PHN, FocusOne Health and regional stakeholders, including Sonder, to foster the expansion of a services directory to support all South Australian communities.

The online services directory provides communities with current information about the health, community and support services available in their region. The directory also has a number of online resources and telephone services listed to assist people to find the right service at the right time to meet their needs. There are no fees involved for organisations to have their services listed.

The services directory is:

  • A high quality accessible, up-to-date web-based tool promoting your organisations activities and supporting timely care and referrals.
  • An engaging medium designed around an evidenced based framework and person-centred approach.
  • A resource intended to strengthen coordination, linkages and referrals within our local community.

Consumers and service providers can tap into their online directory on servicesdirectory.org.au, select the regional areas of interest, and identify the right service at the right time. 

Country SA PHN, FocusOne Health and Sonder encourage service providers and consumers to join in the launch celebrations of the local directory and witness demonstration of the online services directories.

This activity has been made possible by funding and support from Country SA PHN.
