Nursing help for homeless children

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


In a first for the South Australian homelessness sector, a nurse practitioner – Flinders graduate Alicia Bell – will be available at Marion where children and their families who are engaged with UCWB’s homelessness services will have access to professional and free health services.

The new initiative will also be available as an outreach service across the Marion, Holdfast Bay and Mitcham council areas.

The project recognises the detrimental impacts crisis and homelessness can have on children and their families and fills the gap for them to access services to support their physical and mental health.

The new service builds on the successful partnerships that saw student nurses from Flinders University work alongside UCWB’s homelessness team and win an award from the National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
