Community Visitor Scheme

Advocacy and Assistance

The Community Visitor Scheme provides advocacy and assistance to clients, their carers and family members as they work to resolve issues relating to care and service provision.

The Scheme is for people living with disability or mental illness who are:

  • receiving care in a mental health treatment centre or hospital
  • attending a community mental health facility
  • living in disability accommodation
  • attending a Day Options program
  • living in a Supported Residential Facility (SRF).

Clients, carers and family members can request a visit by Community Visitors. Phone 1800 606 302 between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm weekdays (available from mobile phones and within South Australia).
