NOSS Tasmania (NOSS) commenced operation in August 1991, with 8 service users and 6 Support Workers. Under the Community Integration Project, many of the people supported by NOSS moved from Willow Court before moving into shared homes in Launceston.
NOSS operates a community access service, an activity centre (the Red Shed) and an Australian Disability Enterprise called Bluegum Grounds Maintenance. NOSS supports over 120 adults with a disability living in the greater Launceston area.
NOSS is a registered provider of NDIS supports.
NOSS works with and for people with a disability to enhance their quality of life through the provision of support in activities which promote their involvement in the community.
