Our Strategic Goals
1. Community Engagement and Capacity Building
TasCAHRD engages with the community on a variety of levels. This includes conducting projects in partnership with specific community stakeholders as well as broader awareness raising activities targeting the whole Tasmanian community. TasCAHRD works with individuals and groups to support them in developing greater capacity to respond to their own needs and make informed choices.
2. Shared Responsibilities and Collaborations
TasCAHRD believes that no one service can meet all the needs of an individual or community. Working in partnership with the relevant community or individual as well as forming strong, collaborative relationships with other organisations is important for effective outcomes.
3. Client Advocacy and Service Delivery
Individual and systemic advocacy continues to be an important role for TasCAHRD. The development of appropriate services, targeting individuals and communities will continue to be a key function of TasCAHRD. Services include those encompassing advocacy, support and education.
4. Governance, Leadership and Growth
TasCAHRD has strong foundations and established governance structures and is committed to continuous quality improvement. TasCAHRD will endeavour to build on this foundation to maximise its capacity to respond to existing and new issues effecting its target communities.
