While in Gympie they also inspected possible office spaces for TASC’s Social Justice advocate for the area, Alicia Hawkins.
Stopping by TASC’s Bundaberg office also gave them the opportunity for an in person catch up with Nakayla Murnane who joined the TASC team in December.
Frances and Gail also stopped in at Hervey Bay to connect with other people in the community sector.

The Queensland Government has declared 2023 the Year of Accessible Tourism to make sure our state is a destination for everyone, including people of all abilities and to change the perception of what it means to be an accessible tourism business.
One of these initiatives is a new accessible tourism online toolkit delivered by Get Skilled Access and TravAbility on behalf of the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport and now available on the DTIS website for tourism operators to help the industry welcome travellers of all abilities to participate in Queensland’s incredible tourism experiences.
Our TASC Team welcome this and other initiatives that allow people of all abilities to enjoy the same experiences as everyone else. Whether you are seeking more accessibility or are a tourism business embracing accessibility, find out more about what the Year of Accessible Tourism means for you – https://bit.ly/3iQvQ4w

If you receive a call from a number you are not familiar with do NOT provide the person on the phone with any PERSONAL INFORMATION including your social security number, bank information, etc. Sometimes the callers will make it sound like they already have all of this information or like they know you, but you still do NOT want to confirm anything with them. If you are unsure, tell them you will call them back and call a family member, friend or the police department to ask what you should do.
If you live in or around Toowoomba, Ipswich or Western Downs we may be able to help you with you with free legal advice and information or referrals or other services near you. Call 07 4616 9700.
So long holidays, hello back to school. The academic year kicks off next week.
Posting a photo on the first day of school is a tradition for many Queensland families, but it may be putting kids at risk. Queensland Police are warning families sharing photos on social media can give away sensitive information. A single photo can enable predators to discover personal information like names and locations, putting children at risk.
They are also asking drivers to slow it down in school zones and keep an eye out for more cyclists and pedestrians.
Have a great and safe start to your school year, everyone!
