Peer Program

TasPPL provides peer support for people who are newly diagnosed HIV positive – we provide support and service tailored to anyone who has acquired the virus. The program introduces topics such as understanding blood tests, food and nutrition, physical health, travelling with HIV, managing your work, family and social lives. We facilitate social support events such as coffee clubs, positive lunches and dinners, and HIVe, a programme which provides pantry supplies and emergency relief.

One-on-one care and support

Our support workers visit clients across the state to provide a mixture of support, advocacy and referrals.

Case management

If things are getting very tough, our case managers provides direct advocacy and intervention services to help get your life back on track. This might include helping you work out a payment plan or access financial assistance with agencies such as electricity or gas companies, or sourcing rent assistance. It might also mean working that our case managers can work an advocate to help access medical or social services until you feel ready to take control back again.

We provide this help with the aim of empowering people to be independent, self-confident and able to sustain a comfortable lifestyle.

Red Thread

Red Thread acknowledges the continuing custodianship of land by Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging and the cultural and spiritual practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Yesterday was the first day of National Reconciliation Week. This year's theme is 'In This Together'. The dates remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. It is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Red Thread

Today is the launch of Australia's first LGBTIQ+ Domestic Violence Awareness Day, aiming to raise awareness of Domestic Violence (DV) in LGBTIQ+ communities, remember LGBTIQ+ victims of DV who have lost their lives, recognise LGBTIQ+ survivors, and acknowledge the struggles of those LGBTIQ+ people who may currently be in an abusive relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recent studies show that up to 62% of LGBTIQ+ people have experienced domestic violence within their relationships, yet awareness of the issue and reporting rates are still incredibly low with only 6% being reported to police.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
