Barossa Region Vital Signs – 2021

Foundation Barossa is committed to addressing the needs of our community.

Over the years, through our partnerships in the community, we’ve identified the areas we believe we can make the most difference.

This Vital Signs report provides another valuable tool to help us direct our resources — the funds contributed by our community — to have the best impact. It provides a data-driven framework to measure the vitality of our community, and it gives us a snapshot of our strengths, challenges, and needs.

The report covers four key areas:

  • disadvantage and poverty
  • affordable housing and homelessness
  • education and learning; and
  • building resilient communities.

As we launch our inaugural Vital Signs report, we acknowledge that this is just the beginning. We’ll use this tool to track our progress and measure impact for years to come.

Much of the data is pre-COVID-19 and will be an important baseline for future reports.

We encourage you to read this report and to share it with your contacts.
