Keep up to date with changes to service arrangements and closures due to the increasing precautions taken by community service organisations in response to COVID-19.
Due to the increasing precautions that are being undertaken in response to COVID-19, TasCOSS has made the decision for staff to commence working remotely from Monday 23 March 2020. The length of this arrangement is subject to advice from health authorities.
All TasCOSS Members and community service organisations are encouraged to review their contingency plans to ensure minimal impacts to service delivery continuity and wherever possible, contribute to the recovery of individuals, communities and services.
Over 50 years TasCOSS has made a difference in the lives of so many Tasmanians.

A stand out theme across the whole region was the opportunity to access vacant buildings across the community for various developments and initiatives.
