TASC is a long-standing provider of not-for-profit community legal and social justice services across a large geographic area in Queensland.
Established by a committed group of volunteer Solicitors, Toowoomba Community Legal Service was born in 1982.
Working with people in their local communities, our solicitors and advocates recognised that often legal problems were part of, or made worse by, bigger social and economic challenges.
We found that advocacy became a natural fit within our services, and this led to a name change to The Advocacy and Support Centre, or TASC, in 2004. In 2016 we changed our name to TASC National Limited, but most people simply call us “TASC”.
From a small community service in Toowoomba, we now serve over 3,000 people a year, across a geographic area spanning over 400,000 square kilometres of South West Queensland and a further 6,000 kilometres square across the Ipswich region. We operate in other areas such as North and South Burnett and Gympie.
Regardless of name changes and growth over time, our mission has stayed constant. We DO OUR BEST TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY WE WORK WITH, so that people who reach out to TASC trust us, value our advice, and feel welcome and safe.
