Our Supporters

A number of national and state organisations currently partner with Community Care TASMANIA on special projects that support our delivery of quality home care services. We are extremely grateful for their generous support.

These include:

The W. D. Booth Estate Foundation 

  • The W. D. Booth Estate Foundation contributed $8,000 to this website and  the Dial an Angel Service (awarded November 2014). Since 2000 the money generated from the late Winifred Booth's estate has provided $4 million to Tasmanian charities and community programs with a focus on health, youth and the arts. To find out more contact the W. D. Booth Foundation.

The Australian Government’s Better Access to Palliative Care in Tasmania Programme 

  • In July 2015 Community Care Tasmania  received $9,190 through the Tasmanian Association for Hospice & Palliative Care (TAHPC), to produce a bilingual English and Nepali resource booklet Caring for the Aged Bhutanese Nepali Community at Home. Since then TAHPC has made an additional grant to fund a second print run. To find out more contact TAHPC.

Tasmanian Community Fund

  • From January 2016 $74,304 was granted to enable Community Care TASMANIA to employ three Bhutanese Support Workers to run the Community Connections program for three years - until December 2018. The Community Connections Program tackles social isolation among older members of the Bhutanese/Nepalese community. It will introduce them to places and services available to them in their new community and show them how they can access the places and services they need.

Department of Health & Human Services Gambling Support Program

  • Community Care TASMANIA was awarded $11,000 from May 2016-April 2018 to assist in offsetting the Community Connections excursion costs and weekly room hire. It will cover the site entrance fees for group members as well as fuel costs and the hire of the the Migrant Resource Centre Hall, 21 Haig St, Mowbray - the venue used for the group’s weekly gatherings.
