Welcome to the Winter edition of Connect.
Winter appears to have come early this year and I trust you are keeping warm and safe.
We will launch our Winter Appeal this month. Gifts to the Appeal will help us offer emergency accommodation, warm clothing and sturdy footwear, nutritious food and power bill payments to Tasmanians in need.
You’ll meet our friendly scheduling team members on page 4. I find it’s always valuable when I can put a face to a name.
If you find it challenging to access technology, we encourage you to sign up to a new digital inclusion program (page 5).
We know that many readers will have had an arthritis diagnosis. Turn to pages 6-7 for tips on how you can manage your symptoms.
Housing and homelessness has been a big focus recently for our Social Action and Research Centre team. Find out more on page 9.
We hear that it’s likely to be a long and hard ‘flu season this year, on top of the COVID that is still circulating in our community. Please make sure that you and your loved ones are protected by being vaccinated.
With best wishes to you and your families.
