About TasCOSS

TasCOSS’s Vision is of

One Tasmania, free of poverty and inequality where everyone has the same opportunity.

Established in 1961, TasCOSS’s Mission is twofold:

  • to act as the peak body for the community sector in Tasmania, and
  • to challenge and change the systems, behaviours and attitudes that create poverty, inequality and exclusion.

We work with integrity and compassion to amplify the voices of Tasmanians and we name up bold, brave leadership when we see it.
