Community Based Support, or CBS as we are more commonly known, is a Tasmanian, not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people to remain living independently at home since 1988!
We are very proud of the fact that we are Tasmanian owned and operated and we believe that this has gone a long way to helping us to understand the unique needs of our fellow Tasmanian's.
Being socially connected to the community in which you live is an important part of many people’s lives. However, many people talk about the social isolation they experience as they get older. CBS offers very simple solutions to this problem by providing a range of social groups and social support activities for older Tasmanian's.
CBS Social Groups are offered on varying days, in multiple locations across Tasmania. The group offers opportunities for social connection, learning, personal development, or just a reason to get out of the house. When you join our Social Hub, you can participate in a range of fun and interactive activities as well as daily outings which have you travelling on our CBS mini bus to surrounding areas.
The programs will feature special events, wellness activities, guest speakers, arts and crafts, recreational activities, and outings. A sample of the outings is below;
- History Bus Trips
- Boat Trips
- Produce Tour and Picnics/BBQs
- Op Shopping
- Cafes and Restaurants
- Nurseries and Shopping
