Last week TASC’s Seniors Legal and Support Service (SLASS) attended a senior’s expo at Clifford Park in Toowoomba. The event, organized by the State Government aimed to connect local seniors with some of the support providers and programs which are in place to help them stay safe, healthy and connected in the community.
Over 190 Toowoomba seniors attended the morning event which was emceed by State member for Toowoomba North, Trevor Watts.
Representing TASC were Paula and Narelle who took the opportunity to talk face to face about how TASC’s SLASS program can help them secure their safety and well-being.
TASC’s seniors service is available to anyone over the age of 60, or 50 for First Nations people, and helps older people who may be at risk of, or experiencing elder abuse.
