The TASC Team is led by a dedicated Board of Directors and a Chief Executive Officer with a long-standing history of serving the South West community. Since TASC was established in 1982, we have aimed to recruit people who understand the needs of our clients and communities in rural and regional Queensland. Our team of skilled and committed lawyers, social workers, advocates and the people “behind the scenes” – taking calls, booking appointments – are all here because they want to help.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Frances Klaassen OAM joined TASC National as CEO in February 2020, bringing a well-earned reputation as a creative, collaborative trailblazer in the South West Queensland community sector.
For the last 25 years, Frances has been at the forefront of establishing new services in the region to support families, children and young people in vulnerable circumstances, and members of the culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community.
As the Regional Director for long-standing regional provider Mercy Community, Frances implemented a broad range of innovative services across Toowoomba, Warwick and the Southern Downs.
In 2015, Frances’ achievements as a not-for-profit leader were recognised when she was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for service to children and families through social welfare organisations.
