Connecting Communities

Connecting migrants to community has been part of CCT’s remit since it opened for business in 1990. Then, it was to provide home care services to those displaced people who had come to Australia after the second World War, and who by 1990 were our older citizens. Over the decades we have continued to respond to the needs of our migrant communities. In 2014, we began the ground work for a solution to address the social and cultural isolation of a new group of displaced people, the growing numbers of ageing Bhutanese/Nepalese living in Launceston. What we delivered was an award-winning program in innovative care- Community Connections, which ran from 2015 until the end of 2018. This program delivered an array of social support, education and excursions options, which can be seen in the detailed report on its aims and outcomes below. Our commitment in assisting Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) people and their communities access the help they need has never wavered. And we thank them for their trust and support in us; it has helped make us who we are today- they are the ‘Faces of Community Care TASMANIA’, the working title of a book we are currently compiling to share and honour their extra-ordinary stories.
