Tasmanians experiencing poverty and disadvantage are often extremely vulnerable and engaging with media can be daunting.
As a peak body which doesn’t deliver frontline services, TasCOSS is often not in a position to source a case study. If we can’t find you somebody, we will put you in touch with a frontline service or emergency relief provider that is best placed to assist you find a case study with lived experience.
