Our current projects

Our community of practice focuses on supporting older people.

Our approach is to work as a community of practice. Each of the SA Hub Provider Group members contributes and develops team members via working groups. These working groups focus on the SA Innovation Hub's mutally agreed project areas. These adapt and evolve as the teams learn and link ideas and projects. Some examples are provided below.
SA Innovation Hub Evaluation
