Cara's new Hindmarsh head office
Welcome to the new Home of Possible
Cara’s two offices at Woodville and Glenunga have combined. Now, all of our Possible People are located at Hindmarsh.
Cara has grown so much with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) we simply couldn’t fit all of our staff at our old office locations.
ACTIVITY-BASED WORKING: Debbie and Eleanor from the Specialist Services team are working in the new Operations area. Staff here share "hot desks" as they're frequently away from the office and working directly with our customers and staff in services and in the community.
Our new office is easily-accessible with public transport on the city fringe (we're just behind the Entertainment Centre) and it’s fully accessible for people of all abilities.
Our teams can more easily work together to get on with Cara’s most important business of all – finding possible for the children and adults with disability whom we work alongside.
Our contact numbers remain the same:
Our Glenunga office will still be available for training.
You’ll find all of Cara’s office-based staff at Unit 1, 2-4 Adam St, Hindmarsh 5007 (enter off Manton St).
WELCOME: Sarengi is one of the friendly faces (and friendly voices!) you speak with at Cara reception.

Flashback to Cara's Sunday Picnic
We love getting our Cara Community together for the annual Cara Sunday Picnic. We hold it every year, just before Easter, and it's all about fun, food and friends.
But rather than tell you about it, we'd rather show you!
Vote for Cara's short film I am Liam!
For the second year in a row, Cara has entered the Focus on Ability Short Film Festival (Open Entrants – Documentary).
This year’s entry is I am Liam and it tells the story of Liam Goldfinch, one of our campers with a disability who has made the transition to a Cara volunteer!
Liam is such a star, he’s a natural in front of the camera and we at Cara are so grateful for his willingness to give back to the Camps program as a volunteer!
Please watch, share, vote and encourage others to vote!
Voting closes on August 8.
Voting doesn’t require any registration, it’s just your name, email address, suburb and postcode. Once you've voted, check your email for a message from "Nova Website" and click on the link they send you to confirm your vote!
Thanks for supporting our film and our Possible People like Liam!
Quiet Hour trial with Frewville Foodland
Cara is proud to partner with Adelaide's Finest Supermarkets, Frewville Foodland, for a month of Quiet Hour sensory-friendly shopping experiences.
Started by Cara, Quiet Hour is an Australian-first which recognises that the "regular" shopping experience can be too overwhelming for people with sensory overload. Not uncommon for people with autism, sensory overload is when everyday things like lights, music, sounds or smells can become overwhelming.
Cara is supporting Frewville Foodland to host a month of Quiet Hours on Tuesdays from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, held on:
Everyone is welcome to shop at that time and experience the different shopping experience which is Quiet Hour.
The lights will be dimmed, "beep" volume on the checkouts turned down, music and pages messages turned off, shelf restocking paused and smells minimised where possible.
Foodland staff have received training from Cara about sensory overload and they are very supportive.
If Quiet Hour would work for you or your loved ones, please come and shop! If you can't make it but you'd like to offer feedback about other times/locations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
