Every day in Tasmania, the Housing Connect partners, Anglicare, Colony 47, Hobart City Mission, the Salvation Army and CatholicCare are on the ground working with people who are severely disadvantaged including people who are currently experiencing housing stress.
We will ensure Tasmania does not make knee jerk reactions that may result in short term solutions and further disadvantage people in the longer term.
If problems remain today, they are problems that are squarely the responsibility of our new government. Still referencing the performance of the previous Labor government will simply be frittering away time and opportunity.
We want to help you build a community with strong employment opportunities, to do that we need your input because local people know the south east region best.
We have no doubt the people of the West Coast have ideas with the potential to enhance the resilience and vitality of their region and its communities.
By connecting with these communities, facilitating conversations and sharing in the decision-making, we are working together to reduce employment inequality and disadvantage in our State.
The co-design model is designed to engage and involve communities during the development and decision making process and this sits at the heart of this Project.
Emerging Voices helps each and every one of us realise the power of our voice in our community and how we as individuals can shape Tasmania.
TasCOSS has developed a ‘Capitals Framework’ for Sorell and the Derwent Valley to help all partners in the Community Innovation and Investment Project (CIIP) better understand the people and places we’ll be working with before we hit the ground with community consultation.
For 2018/2019, TasCOSS advanced three Budget Priorities Statements that we and our Members think are key to shaping fair, inclusive and equal communities now and into the future.
