The Stretton Centre was founded in partnership by the City of Playford, the University of Adelaide and Renewal SA, and founded by the Australian Government and the Playford Alive Initiatives fund.
City of Playford
The City of Playford is a local government area of South Australia in Adelaide's northern suburbs. The name "Playford" comes from the recognition of Sir Thomas Playford, who played a part in the development of the area, and was South Australia's premier from 1938-1965.
Playford Alive is the place of choice to live in northern Adelaide with facilities such as healthcare, education, recreation and a new $250m town centre.
Renewal SA provides an integrated approach to urban development and renewal on behalf of the Government of South Australia to create places where people want to live, work and play.
Flinders Foundation Studies program
The program is the first of its kind for the City of Playford and provides high school leavers and mature aged residents in northern Adelaide with a pathway to further education. The course is free to eligible applicants.
