Community Based Support, or “CBS” as we are more commonly known, is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people in Tasmanian to remain living independently at home for over 25 years!
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 needs of our fellow Tasmanians over the years.
CBS provides a wide range of statewide support services to people who are over the age of 65, people who are frail, people with disability, and unpaid carers. All services offered may also be purchased privately by anyone over the age of 18.
These include Social Groups and Social Support Services.
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 Tasmanians.
CBS social groups and social support services operate throughout Tasmania on varying days providing older Tasmanians the opportunity to meet new friends and have a lot of fun! There are many social activities to choose from including Day Centres, Social Groups, Sundowner Groups, Water Aerobics and Gentle Movement Chat Groups. Activities are usually decided upon by the group, ranging from activities offered at the CBS Day Centres to out and about bus trips.
Contact CBS on (03) 6208 6600 to talk about how we can support you to live the life you choose in the place you love.
