With initial funding support from SA Health, the FallsSA website was launched in November 2007 in response to a need for a one-stop-shop for falls prevention and management information for the public, health professionals, General Practitioners and carers.

The site is maintained by Active Ageing Australia. Under the direction of a Project Advisory Group, the format and content of the website is regularly updated to ensure current, accessible information.

Some of the information available on the website includes:

  • consumer fact sheets on various topics (e.g. vision, exercise and balance, medications, health conditions, footcare and footwear)
  • information on falls prevention services and programs and how to link with them
  • fall prevention guidelines and plans
  • professional development opportunities
