Our advocacy aims to influence policy, legislative, funding and service delivery decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. Advocacy includes media campaigns, public speaking, commissioning and publishing research to promote public debate and awareness.

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those citizens who are in need and are most vulnerable in society, are able to:

  • Have their needs included in decisions that affect them
  • Defend and safeguard their rights
  • Have their voices genuinely considered when decisions are being made about them

Policies and legislation shape the way institutions and organisations operate and can have a huge impact on people’s everyday lives. Policies are used to determine eligibility for services, provision of resources, and determining courses of action. Shelter SA informs and recommends policy changes or resists policy changes, where needed. View Shelter SA's Policy Position

Being poor is not a vice, being rich is not a virtue. Being old is not a failing, nor is being black, or female. Why the punitive cashless welfare card must go. My latest in @10Daily https://t.co/yEuzdPUqAb

@ShelterSa @HeroesAcademic Sound report. Root cause of wage rates not addressed. Security cams are a bandaid fix. Until then the industry will attract some, not all, folk that are not aligned to the values of this critical, most vulnerable part of our society.

@ShelterSa @CareProtectLtd I have seen the push for cameras in classroom (interestingly pushed by those selling them). Drew their attention to the areas which cannot or do not have cameras...
toilets, playgrounds ...
There is a need for privacy & dignity. Properly trained workers.... high expectations.
