TasRec Program

TasRec creates and provides links to a diverse range of community-based recreational and social activities, events, and opportunities for skill building and creative expression, all with a focus on enjoyment and wellbeing. The TasRec philosophy is all about inclusion, building connections, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and having fun!

We run four x 11 week programs throughout the year with some activities continuing all year round while others change with the seasons, providing a broad range of ongoing favourites and fresh opportunities throughout the year. All our programs and activities are open to anyone with a lived experience of mental ill-health.
