Members of Star
STAR is a not for profit charitable organisation that provides a teaching and volunteer service for people with disabilities who wish to live in their own home and require assistance to do this successfully; we operate throughout inner metropolitan Adelaide. STAR strives to assist individuals to achieve their potential to manage and maintain their homes and enjoy a community based lifestyle of their choice. This is undertaken by the provision of a teaching programme, resource development and a volunteer programme that meets the specific needs of each individual. STAR is funded by the South Australian Government through the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion and also through both State and Federal Government through the Home and Community Care Programme.


Since 1986 STAR has developed a range of teaching resources to assist people with disabilities to learn the skills required to successfully live independently.

Star Volunteering

The STAR Volunteer programme aims to link people with disabilities with a volunteer for social support and offers opportunities for all, regardless of ability to volunteer in the community.

Teaching Services

Our teaching programme is tailored to cater to each individual’s needs and our role is to teach adults the skills required to successfully manage their homes independently and to make ourselves redundant in this process.

Working with STAR

STAR is committed to providing quality teaching, support, advocacy and volunteer services to our participants and to continue to do so we require appropriately skilled and motivated staff.
