TasCOSS activity during the 2022/23 Financial Year was characterised by successful outcomes resulting from partnerships and collaboration across the state’s community services industry, as well as state and federal government departments and agencies, local government and our national COSS network.
TasCOSS led a Fair Funding advocacy campaign to call for and raise awareness of the need for fair and adequate indexation for community service organisations, in light of service delivery challenges posed by rising inflation and increased demand for services. The campaign has seen high levels of engagement with members of the community services industry and has resulted to-date in a move to implement five year funding contracts, along with a commitment from the Tasmanian Government to lead national work around indexation. Conversations around indexation, which was not adequately addressed in the 2023/24 Tasmanian Budget, are ongoing.
