Colony 47 Inc

Alleviating Poverty


Colony 47 is dedicated to creating a fairer community and eliminating poverty. We are committed to upholding our vision of fairness, passion, opportunity and community. This vision underlies our approach to all service delivery across the organisation.

We are a proudly Tasmanian, not-for profit organisation offering services to disadvantaged Tasmanians for over forty years.

We provide a range of support services to Tasmanians in need across our programs including;

  • housing assistance for people who are homeless or whose housing is unstable or who are isolated as a result of extreme poverty
  • tenants needing financial assistance
  • accommodation for young people who are homeless or escaping family violence
  • supported employment opportunities for people with mental illness or people who have physical or intellectual disabilities
  • services for young children and families who live in disadvantaged communities
  • counselling services for young people and their families
  • Community Christmas lunch.

Colony 47 continues to offer our services in a friendly supportive atmosphere as our founders intended.

Over the past twelve months demand for Colony 47 services has increased substantially as living costs in Tasmania continue to rise.  We continue to strive to create a community where everyone has access to housing, employment, training and family support. We assist people to strengthen their relationships and create opportunities. We work together to make a positive difference in people's lives.

Colony 47 is well known for high performing, integrated services and sector leadership in many areas. You can assist us in the work we do financially or by partnering with our organisation which invests daily in local communities.
