Community education and information sessions

At Anglicare, we provide a wide range of services designed to help support people as they face life’s challenges, no matter where they live in Tasmania.

Our team are highly skilled in community support and have been trained and qualified as educators in their respective fields.

Each training package is designed for your audience, your needs and your desired outcomes. This is not off the shelf training, rather we get to know you and your team or community group needs, and tailor our training, information and delivery accordingly.

All of our training can be delivered at the site of your choice, or if numbers allow, at any one of our locations around Tasmania. We would be pleased to deliver your session online if that is your preference.
