We are still open and serving our community!
As a result of COVID-19 and its repercussions, we are expecting to see an increase in our community’s need for legal and advocacy assistance. We are happy to announce that all TASC National branches remain open with minimal impact on the services we provide.
How we are operating:
We have taken steps to ensure we can safely continue to offer free legal and advocacy services to the public. Our NDIS Support Coordination also remains unaffected. To protect the well-being of our clients and staff we have shifted to phone appointments. As always, we can be contacted on 4616 9700 for any enquires, referrals or new clients. When it is time for the client’s appointment, our team member will call them directly. This number may or may not be a private number.
We are encouraging all client documents be sent in by email to reception@tascnational,org.au but also have a drop-off box outside each office for documents that cannot be sent by email. Please contact our office if you are intending to drop-off any documents.
