West Coast Crisis Service continues with Anglicare

29 May 2015

A local crisis accommodation service funded by Department of Health and Human Services and established by the West Coast Council more than twenty years ago is being transferred to Anglicare Tasmania.

The West Coast Crisis Accommodation Service began in 1993, with three long-term properties and one short-term, fully-furnished crisis accommodation property.

Since then, hundreds of individuals and families within the West Coast have sought the assistance of the service. Those helped had been subject to family violence, financial difficulty, or been at risk of homelessness.

“West Coast Council is proud to have played such an important role in offering a unique, vital service to local residents,” said Mayor Phil Vickers. “We believe that the transfer of this program to Anglicare will allow it to grow and will complement other local services provided by Anglicare,” Mayor Phil Vickers said.

Anglicare is already at work on the West Coast offering services such as financial counselling, housing assistance and alcohol and other drugs services.

“The West Coast community has a strong tradition of responding to the needs of local people– and that is something Anglicare is pleased to be part of in an ongoing way,” said Michael Voumard from Anglicare’s Community Services.
