Our Organisation

Family Based Care Tasmania is a local, non-faith based, not for profit organisation that has been providing support in the home and community assisting people with the tasks of daily living in support of the aged, people with a disability and carers since 1986.   

That’s over 30 years of experience delivering care and support, helping people live safely and independently in their homes for longer.  With Family Based Care Tasmania, you and your family can be assured that we will always do our best to provide care that is the right fit at the right time in the right place.

With offices in Burnie, Launceston, Devonport and Hobart our service area extends across Tasmania including remote areas such as King Island, Flinders Island and the West Coast.  

Our focus is to provide you with reliable family oriented care solutions tailored to your personal situation  individual needs and preferences.

In January 2018, Family Based CareTasmania enhanced its business through the acquisition of Tidswell Consulting and we are now a leading provider of Vocational services in Tasmania.  Providing assistance to people who are disadvantaged in the labour market, whether by injury, disability, education deficits, worklessness, or other factors.

Tidswell Consulting is based in our Devonport office and provides Vocational services across Tasmania. 


By 2020, Family Based Care Tasmania will be the largest non-faith-based provider of individualised support services to the aged, disabled and their carers in the north and north-west of Tasmania, enabling individuals to stay in their own home for as long as possible.


Our mission is to secure a financially sustainable future through compassionate delivery of support services to the aged, disabled and their carers in their own homes in the north and north-west of Tasmania.
