About Tasc

Our Legal and Advocacy Teams are understanding towards your situation.
Formerly Toowoomba Community Legal Service

TASC (formerly the Toowoomba Community Legal Service) was founded in 1982 as a small legal service for disadvantaged people.

 

Today TASC is nationally known for its innovative delivery of legal, and advocacy services across the whole south-west of the state and most recently, into Ipswich and West Moreton.

Strong background

TASC has a strong background of working collaboratively with other local organisations, often joining forces with community organisations and government departments to improve our service delivery.

Pioneering Legal & Advocacy Services

TASC is pioneering the way community legal services can become more accessible to clients, in the very troubled heartland where disadvantaged people so desperately need intervention.

QCJC – Queensland Criminal Justice Centre

In 2008, in association with QUT Law School, TASC launched the Queensland Criminal Justice Centre (QCJC). The QCJC is Australia’s first web-based resource for lawyers in proactively assisting lawyers in the nuances of effectively representing vulnerable people in our criminal courts. It showcases why TASC has become Australia’s leading authority on effective legal representation of disabled people.

COMMITMENT TO DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

TASC has also led the State in the use of technology. As technology has advanced throughout the years – so has the service delivery TASC can provide to clients in the South West Region of Queensland. We use state of the art video-conferencing technology to stay in contact with our clients and the many services that work in the west.

 

Our technology is supported by regular trips to the region by our full compliment of TASC services. Coinciding with the use of this technology, TASC in keeping with its contemporary focus, is rapidly developing a strong WEB 2.0 focus, utilising this new technology as a means of bridging across the chasm to a new generation of disadvantaged Queenslanders.

 

Our commitment in this respect will soon become overtly apparent with the pending launch of a new web-based service, that proudly is not reliant upon government funding, but rather the passion of the people who work within this organisation to make a difference.
