Supporting community and social participation through a range of group and individual supports
Multicap Tasmania provides a ‘hub and spoke’ model of community-based supports for people with disability, where every individual is encouraged to pursue their goals by accessing skills-based learning, recreation and social activities.
Our programs are flexible, and generally operate between 9am and 3pm on weekdays, however we currently offer group activities on Saturdays, and social and fitness activities on weekday evenings, as well as school holiday programs.
With Hubs (or meeting places) located in Wynyard, Burnie, Devonport and Launceston, you can receive the support you require, meet new friends and get out in your local community, all while learning new skills.
Working together with you and your family or support network, we will create a personalised plan around your goals and aspirations, and identify the programs and supports that will assist you to achieve them. Support can complement your existing informal supports, such as your family, friends and other community members.
Multicap Tasmania caters to many different needs and interests in a safe and supportive environment, both within our hubs and in the local community.
Our qualified staff take a person-centered approach, and are committed to providing innovative and stimulating programs and activities designed to enhance your life skills and promote choice, inclusion, independence and wellbeing.
