Playgroup Tasmania acknowledges that we live, work and play on Aboriginal land, land of the palawa people of lutruwita (Tasmania). We pay our respects to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, to elders past and present and to all those who continue caring for country, sharing stories and upholding rights.

First ever Tasmanian Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy launched

Wednesday 11 August, 2021

Playgroup Tasmania was proud to be involved as a consultation partner for development of Tasmania’s first Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy. It Takes a Village includes a four-year plan that sets out actions and focus across the six wellbeing domains, covering the years 2021 to 2025.

Access to parent groups and volunteer supported playgroups for vulnerable parents is included as one of the Key Actions under the ‘Loved, Valued and Safe’ wellbeing domain.

Playgroup Tasmania looks forward to supporting and implementing activity under the strategy.
