Colony 47 Inc

Colony 47 is an independent, proudly Tasmanian charity.

From our pioneering beginnings in 1973 until today, Colony 47 has been at the forefront of identifying and addressing the complex needs of socially isolated and vulnerable Tasmanians. We know from experience and research that the roots of disadvantage run deep in our community. We help individuals and families develop solutions and find support to build better lives.

Colony 47 delivers integrated services to help individuals and families stay housed, access education, develop skills, find employment and build meaningful family relationships. We have expertise in providing effective support to people such as homeless young women, long term unemployed, humanitarian entrants, or people with persistent and severe mental illness.

Since Colony 47 opened the doors of Tasmania’s first drop in centre 40 years ago, we have evolved to become a sophisticated charitable organisation. Colony 47 is enterprising and innovative – we strategically pursue opportunities to enhance our capacity to meet the needs of disadvantaged Tasmanians in an ethical and entrepreneurial manner. This includes our social enterprise, Start Fresh Services, a competitive cleaning and maintenance business creating employment opportunities for people with a disability.

We believe that better outcomes come from working together and Colony 47 partners with a growing number of businesses to increase opportunity. $2 for Change is a fundraising partnership between Colony 47 and Tasmanian restaurants and cafes. Colony 47’s Big Christmas and Winter Appeal are made possible by the generous support we receive from the Tasmanian community. Colony 47 has also established Foundation 47 to secure the long term sustainability of our services to deliver the best outcomes for Tasmanians in need.

Colony 47’s team of talented and dedicated staff, our committed volunteers, our generous corporate partners and all those who generously donate their money and time are helping us to achieve our vision of creating a fairer community and eliminating poverty.

With your help, we can open doors for people together.
