New Community Care Pilot launched for Neighbourhood Houses

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Community Services and Development

Neighbourhood Houses across Tasmania play a vital role in community connections, as well as providing support to communities, which has been particularly important during the pandemic.

It was a pleasure to recognise this vital role today, announcing the launch of the Neighbourhood House Community Care Adviser Pilot at the Network conference in Deloraine.

Our investment of $2.8 million for this Pilot will deliver practical support to meet increased individual and community needs, building on the inclusive and open access model at the core of the Network.

This is part of our $5.2 million in additional support for the Neighbourhood House Network, which includes an additional $2 million to bolster the Neighbourhood House Capital Improvement Program to further improve amenities at houses across the state, and $400,000 to assist with governance across the Network.

The Tasmanian Government values and thanks the Neighbourhood House Network, and their dedicated staff and volunteers for their commitment and contribution of the Neighbourhood House legacy.
