Help Tassie Mums help Tassie kids

Tasmanian organisation Tassie Mums is seeking support to ensure it can continue to help Tasmanian children.

Tassie Mums assists kids across Tasmania by providing vulnerable children and infants with basic essentials including clothes, nappies and toiletries.

Recent events have led to founder Clair Harris and her team seeking support to secure a vehicle to help accept and transport donations.

“The community’s need for our free service has more than doubled in recent years,” Ms Harris said.

“We have now submitted letters to all major parties requesting funding.”

Tassie Mums supports more than 100 organisations across Tasmania, more than half of which are government departments.

By June 2024 Tassie Mums will have delivered close to $1 million worth of goods to the Tasmanian community.

Tasmania has the highest rate of childhood poverty of any state or territory in Australia, and Tassie Mums is determined to change this.

“It’s time to acknowledge the value of children, break this cycle of poverty and make sure the children of Tasmania are supported,” Ms Harris said.

“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Tasmanians that allows us to support vulnerable Tassie kids with items like clothing, nappies and toiletries.”
