Activity Centre

The Red Shed

The Red Shed Activity Centre offers a variety of activities and courses which teach skills of all kinds from practical skills such as cooking or literacy to life skills such as patience, perseverance and making friends.  In addition, activities will be organised off site such as tennis, fishing etc.

You may attend with your NOSS support worker for all or part of your day or sign up for individual workshops that interest you.  Participants who are not supported by NOSS may need to provide their own support.

Activities are on a fee for service basis. 

Courses are based on demand and may include:

  • Drama
  • Music
  • Band
  • Cooking and hospitality skills
  • Mosaics, felting and other crafts
  • Card making
  • Flower arranging
  • Drumming
  • Gardening
  • Photography

Individual Courses

Other courses such as training in literacy and budgeting can be arranged on an individual or group basis.

The Red Shed is currently undergoing redevelopment and is expected to be completed early October.  In the meantime, the activities are continuing at various other sites in Launceston.

For more information, please contact us or ring the NOSS office on (03) 6334 4911.


  • NOSS provides my daughter with motivated, caring, professional and enthusiastic staff.  I know that she enjoys her time with NOSS by her eagerness to head out the door and participate in her chosen activities.  She has learnt and continues to learn new skills which she transfers into her daily life. She is also a welcomed and familiar face within the various social circles she has developed through the help of the supportive NOSS staff.


  • My brother has had some very dedicated long-term NOSS support workers. They work with allied health professionals in his team and had a big impact helping my brother continue to develop his skills and confidence in the world. We are both very grateful.


  • Thanks to the tireless efforts of NOSS and their friendly, diligent staff our son has come a long way into developing independence beyond our wildest dreams.

    We are extremely pleased with NOSS and would certainly recommend them as a provider.
