Community Services Industry COVID-19 Issues Register

TasCOSS is taking on the key coordinating role for the community service industry in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the most important priorities in this is providing a channel to government for the issues you identify across the industry.

To facilitate this we have set up an issues register. You can use the issues register to note roadblocks and concerns regarding high level organisational needs (e.g. variation to core contracts and KPIs) or raise issues that need to be dealt with to assist people living on low incomes (e.g. physical and mental health, access to safe accommodation, food).

TasCOSS will monitor the issues register, respond to your enquiries and feed your responses through to government. You do not need to log in or register to post a on the Community Services Industry COVID-19 Issues Register, simply click on the forum link below.
