Our strategic enablers

There are four key strategic enablers which underpin all of our work in delivering the Wellbeing SA Strategic Plan 2020-2025 and supporting the health and wellbeing of South Australians.

Community engagement and participation

Wellbeing SA is embedding community engagement and co-design processes into policy and practice.

Community engagement has helped to shape the development of our agency from its inception, and continues to be important to informing and designing our actions to deliver against our Strategic Plan.

Co-design approaches are used to support some of our key programs and services and ensures that community members and our stakeholders are active participants across the lifespan of these initiatives - from planning and design, to implementation and evaluation.

Examples of this strategic enabler in action:


Wellbeing SA is developing strong and sustainable partnerships in prevention and integrated care.

We engage with a wide range of partners including other state government agencies, local government, non government organisations, universities and research institutes, and community groups to inform our work and support community health and wellbeing. In addition, we are partnering with health service providers to deliver care options closer to home.

By working in partnership, we are able to extend the reach of resources invested into prevention, increase understanding and awareness of wellbeing related issues, and better respond to the health and wellbeing needs of the community.

Evidence based action

Wellbeing SA is leading and enabling evidence based action to support health and wellbeing.

Our agency is the custodian of established population health data collections and is investing in new collections to support monitoring of health and wellbeing across the state. Through leading primary research, analysing secondary research and embedding evaluation processes across our work, we contribute to the collection of quality data across the state, ensure the accessibility of evidence and support active translation of research into practice and policy.

Examples of this strategic enabler in action:


Wellbeing SA is leading the remodelling, redesign and rebalancing required to support evidence based reinvestment in prevention and wellbeing.

We are investing our agency resources and effort to drive a renewed focus on prevention to support the community to stay well, and to reduce risk factors for and impact of chronic disease for others.

With the knowledge that supporting community wellbeing is a shared responsibility, we are building and maintaining partnerships for investment as a priority. We are working collaboratively to plan and deliver co-invested and co-funded initiatives, achieved by combining knowledge, resources, networks and expertise with partners, to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for all South Australians.
