Are you on the brink of your tax bracket? A donation at the end of this financial year does good in the community and also reduces your taxable income. This is a generous method to help shift the rate in which your earnings are taxed each year.

More and more Aussies are relying on us for help. Please give before 30th of June to make a difference today. Your charitable donation ensures that no one is left in need.

Celebrating Mabo Day – 30 Years Later

On 3 June, we commemorate 30 years since the 1992 Mabo decision by the High Court of Australia. Eddie Koiki Mabo courageously fought for 10-year to gain recognition of traditional Indigenous land rights. Always was, always will be. Thanks Eddie!

Writing the new chapters of our history is in our hands

The National Reconciliation Week’s theme for 2022 is ‘Be Brave. Make Change’. This is a call for all Australian to be brave in their daily lives and to tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so all Australians can benefit through an equal and united front.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture is one of the oldest continuing cultures and has thrived on this land for over 80 000 years. These communities deserve to have access to the same opportunities. However, they still experience racism, prejudice, and gaps in health, justice, education and employment. National unity will only be possible if we are brave and bold enough to call this out wherever we find it.

TASC is funded by the Queensland Government to deliver the Seniors Legal and Support Service (SLASS). This free service is available to anyone aged over 60 years and First Nations people aged over 50 years.

If you live in or around Toowoomba or Ipswich , simply visit https://www.tascnational.org.au/services/ or call 07 4616 9700 for a confidential discussion with one of our SLASS  team.

National Sorry Day

We all make mistakes. But when those mistakes cause harm to others, communication channels are destroyed and relationships are put at risk. An apology cannot undo the past, but through open and inclusive dialogue, we can break down and rebuild those communication bridges and help repair relationships.

It may even be an opportunity to strengthen the relationship.

Every year on 26 May, Australia pauses to acknowledge the grief, trauma and loss suffered by the Stolen Generations and share the steps towards healing for the First Australians affected, as well as their families and communities.

If you or your loved ones have been affected by the child removal policies and would like support in your healing journey, reach out to https://healingfoundation.org.au/
