Social Outreach and Advocacy

Social Outreach and Advocacy Services reach out to people experiencing disadvantage to improve health and wellbeing. Our broad range of community-based services are located across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. Accessible free of charge or at minimal cost, Social Outreach and Advocacy Services aim to provide essential services to communities that would not exist without St John of God Health Care's intervention.
