The theme for the TasCOSS Conference 2023 is People and Place, which will be explored through a diverse range of sessions that delve into the broad trends impacting the community services industry, including place-based, community-led innovations and change, industry sustainability, and lived experience advocacy. The conference will also look at on the ongoing development of a Tasmanian Wellbeing Framework in partnership with the Tasmanian Government and why a Tasmanian Human Rights Act is so vital in protecting the rights of all Tasmanian citizens.

You will have the opportunity to hear from and engage with lived experience advocates, thought leaders and change-makers, as well as Tasmanian politicians to discuss our industry’s future and a collective vision of a good life for all Tasmanians.

The TasCOSS Conference 2023 full program will be available soon.
