People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
Communities experiencing locational disadvantage
Where people live affects their access to social and economic opportunities and therefore their relative advantage or disadvantage. Some South Australian communities have entrenched disadvantage.
