The continuing COVID-19 health and economic crises have led to more people than ever struggling to find paid work. For every job available in Tasmania today there are 21 job seekers.

Emergency Food Relief Directory

The Emergency Food Relief Directory has been complied as a result of queries from support agencies on where additional support for food relief efforts can be directed, such as produce, meals, deliveries and volunteers. The directory aims to capture the current activity in the three regions — North-West, North and South.

JobSeeker and Coronavirus Supplement

JobSeeker is lifting thousands of people out of poverty. Over 120,000 Tasmanians are just getting by on inadequate incomes. The new rate of JobSeeker (including the Coronavirus Supplement) has allowed families to meet basic household needs and relieve financial stress.

Emergency Relief Service Providers

Emergency relief organisations provide services directly to regional communities statewide. Please contact an organisation for advice and assistance.
