Services to the Homeless
RDNS provides services to people that are homeless through two Nursing Clinics situated at Byron Place and Hutt Street.
No Pulgi is an outreach primary health care service partnership between Nunkuwarrin Yunti, the Aboriginal Sobriety Group and RDNS for people who are homeless in the Adelaide CBD. Aboriginal people represent around 30 percent of the clients of the program.
The aim of the program is to improve the health of the homeless population, particularly around chronic disease management and reducing the incidence of preventable disease and injury. Due to the unique nature of the clinics and client population, this results in a crossover of homelessness, mental health, drug and alcohol and Aboriginal health (due to over representation in statistics per head of population).
The 2 clinics are co-located within the supported environments of The Daughters of Charity (Hutt St) and Byron Place (Uniting Communities). The clinic nurses work alongside social workers and other support staff of both services in order to provide a multidisciplinary support for the homeless.
Services are provided through the RDNS Homeless Nursing Clinics, Catherine House and also from Nunkuwarrin Yunti, the Aboriginal Sobriety Group and the Salvation Army Sobering Up Unit.
