Shared Services

The TasCOSS Shared Services project seeks to facilitate and promote the sharing of accommodation and back-office services by community service organisations in Tasmania. Sharing services is important for CSOs looking to deliver new, improved or more integrated services and to make efficiency savings through lowering costs and reducing duplicate efforts.

Shared services is also about sharing information and utilising the purchasing power of the sector to lower costs and tailor products and services to the community sector.

Contact TasCOSS with your shared services opportunity or need on or 6231 0755.

The following documents may assist your organisation in buying or renewing insurance. The documents listed under Getting started address the insurance needs of the community sector across Australia but there are differences between the legislation in each state.  These documents are based on NSW legislation and therefore queries in relation to Tasmanian legislation will require further consultation with an insurance expert.
