Northern Connections is a seeder of community programs in Northern Adelaide. These currently include:

Beyond Auto

Northern Street Beautification Partnership

Wheels in Motion

Automotive Community Services Executive Group

Learning to Work (WorkConnectED)

Northern Street Beautification Partnership

A collaboration with Housing SA and northern councils linked to the Northern Economic Plan. In May 2017, landscape and building improvement works commenced at 16 Housing SA properties in the City of Salisbury. Tenants are also involved in this project.

New Street Beautification partnerships will commence in the coming financial year.

Wheels in Motion

A partnership between DCSI, the City of Salisbury, the City of Playford and Rotary (Salisbury and Elizabeth) that provides eligible young people from northern Adelaide with subsidised driving lessons. Qualified volunteers provide the lessons.

Automotive Community Services Executive Group

As part of preparing for the impact of the closure of South Australia's automotive industry, Northern Connections is forming a high-level strategic partnership with Adelaide metro-based NGOs.

Learning to Work (WorkConnectED)

Northern Connections is collaborating with all 11 schools in the Northern Adelaide Secondary Schools Alliance (NASSSA), Northern Adelaide Senior College (NASC) and Northern Futures in this program which aims to investigate connections between students and the world of work.

We are helping to design a consistent way for NASSSA to engage with business and industry, consulting national and international research to establish best practice.
