About Salt Care

Who we are

Salt Care is a local, registered, not-for-profit, volunteer based Charity that provides benevolent relief to the homeless, the poor, the socially disadvantaged, those who suffer from mental health issues, the disabled, indigenous, elderly, and young people at risk. We partner with local organisations, businesses, and individuals across the South Coast to meet the unmet needs in our community.

Our mission is to provide immediate help and facilitate long-term assistance.

Why we do it

Salt Care understands that everyone needs to belong. We stand in solidarity with those whose dignity has been denied. We locate ourselves with the poor, the powerless and the voiceless. We stand with the disposable so that the day will come when we stop throwing people away.

Strategic plan

Our Strategic Plan outlines Salt Care’s Mission, Vision and Values and identifies four core business objectives (inner circle of the wheel) which will be the focus of Salt Care’s activities over the next two years. These are:

  • Partnership and Collaboration

  • Growth and Diversification

  • Sustainability

  • Engagement
