Public Trustee supporting a more Compassionate Tasmania to support those in need

Tasmania needs compassionate communities that can support the elderly, terminally ill and people with disabilities.

To help build those communities, the Public Trustee is sponsoring the ‘Compassionate Tasmania’ symposium on today in Hobart.

Public Trustee CEO, Todd Kennedy, said the symposium would be a chance to hear from nationally and internationally renowned experts.

“We believe that through collaboration and innovation, Tasmania can build more resilient, compassionate communities that can reach out to vulnerable Tasmanians,” Mr Kennedy said.

“The Public Trustee works with some of the most vulnerable people in our community. We recognise the importance of partnering with broader support organisations. We have seen first hand the positive impact people can make if they look out for others in the community.  By providing that support we can all become a little bit more connected to our communities.

“Many of the people we support don’t have family support or strong community networks to help them.  We are introducing a new, client-centric approach for helping Tasmanians and as part of that it’s important for us to build strong relationships in the community as well. 

“One of the biggest opportunities from today’s symposium is to learn from other groups in the community about how we can improve what we do and that’s why we are supporting the symposium.”
