TASC is funded by the State and Federal governments to provide free services, therefore some eligibility criteria may apply.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM ELIGIBLE?

If you aren’t sure whether we can help you, get in touch with our friendly team to discuss your circumstances.

You don’t need a referral to make an appointment with one of our lawyers, advocates, or social workers.

Our services are subject to eligibility, such as:

  • Geographical location – do you live in an area where we get funding from the government to support?
  • Income – are you on a low income or going through financial hardship?
  • Personal circumstances – do you suffer from a mental health issue or have a disability?
  • Presenting issue – is your issue within our scope or can we refer you to another service?
