Our History

NOSS Tasmania was first called Northern Occupational Support Services. We commenced operation in August 1991 under the Tasmanian government’s Community Integration Project. Many of the people supported by NOSS moved from Willow Court before moving into shared homes in Launceston.

NOSS services included: community access, Bluegum Grounds Maintenance and Light Foot

NOSS started out with just 8 service users and 6 support workers. Now we support over 100 people, and employ nearly 100 support workers and 22  supported employees.
