Welcome to the Spring edition of Connect.

Anglicare is proud to employ 217 Tasmanians to deliver aged care services across our State. On Aged Care Employee Day (7 August) we expressed our thanks for the important work they do supporting the wellbeing of older Tasmanians.

Team members tell us they find their jobs meaningful and rewarding. Turn to page 6 for an interview with Home Care Cleaner Meg, and meet Home Care Worker Tammy on page 8.

You may have seen recent stories in the media about Anglicare seeking government action on the challenging issue of illicit drug use in our State. We want all Tasmanians who use illicit drugs to have access to useful services, support and treatment.

This means taking an approach that is health-focused and based on evidence. Our Social Action and Research Centre published a position paper on this topic and we are talking to members of Parliament about it.

Turn to page 11 to find out about a new Anglicare research project about housing that may be particularly interesting to you.

Best wishes,
Chris Jones, CEO
