It's Men's Health Week (13-19 June) and an opportunity to take time to reflect on the health challenges facing the men in our lives.
Men are more likely to suffer from lifestyle-related health conditions than women of the same age. And sadly, three-quarters of those who died by suicide in 2020 were men.
Thank you to the Clare Quilters who have recently donated the 100th gorgeous homemade quilt to Uniting Country SA for use across our Domestic Violence, Homelessness and Foster Care programs.

It is National Reconciliation Week ❤️🖤💛
The theme this year is “Be Brave. Make Change.”
The challenge is for all Australians; individuals, families, communities and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of Reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
Learn more about ‘Country' from a First Nations’ perspective and as we can all learn how we can better contribute to healing.
Thank you to Wingaru Education Pty Ltd Education.
Today is National Sorry Day in Australia.
A day where UCSA stands alongside our Aboriginal staff, volunteers and community members in solidarity. We remember and acknowledge the significance of Sorry Day for our First Nations people and promise to continue to walk toward reconciliation.
