Not Another Charity Event


On May 15, UnitingCare Wesley Bowden celebrated the tireless work of carers in our community with a gourmet lunch, and performance by the stars of hit musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Carers are often ‘on-call’ 24/7. Studies show that their caring roles can significantly affect their physical and mental health, they are usually unpaid and, sadly, unacknowledged by the community.

Check out those pearly whites!

Good dental health is important to your overall health and wellbeing. In recent years the number of Australian children with tooth decay has increased, however if found early the progress of the decay may be stopped.

Staff from the South Australian Dental Service recently attended our Child and Family Centre at Torrensville to look for early signs of tooth decay in our students. This service is provided free to parents and the Centre as part of SA Health’s Lift the Lip program.


Community spirit shines at Torrensville


On Saturday 5th May, bright sunshine welcomed over 25 parents, 6 staff members and 15 children to our Torrensville Child and Family Centre’s recent working bee.

Parents and staff alike kindly donated their time, expertise and materials to ‘blitz’ the Centre. The great weather allowed a lot of outdoor jobs to be tackled including pruning, planting and mulching the garden, creating a new paved bicycle track for the toddlers and a tyre course to help children practice their balancing skills.
