Welcome to Shelter Tas

We are the peak body for housing and homelessness in lutruwita/Tasmania and we acknowledge the palawa/pakana peoples of lutruwita on whose land we live, work and meet.
Our vision is for affordable, appropriate, safe and secure housing for all and an end to homelessness.
Our mission is to provide a united voice for services and service users that creates a framework to effect positive change in the housing and homelessness sector.
We work to ensure that low-income and disadvantaged people in Tasmania have access to housing that is affordable, safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.
