Community Based Support Tasmania

About Us


CBS Vision and Mission

Our vision at Community Based Support Inc. is to support people to live the life they choose.  This means is that we put the person wanting support at the centre of the picture.  They are involved in the care plan from the first time we have contact.  Where appropriate, CBS also includes family members, friends and the broader community in the planning process.


Ultimately, this drives CBS’s mission to maximise your independence by putting you in control of your life.

What does CBS do?

CBS Staff – why would you trust them?

Every single person, without exception, who works for CBS has undergone and passed a “Working with vulnerable people check”.  All staff have also signed a confidentiality agreement which means that personal information, including the support received at home or in the community, is kept in confidence.  And that’s just the beginning of the good news.


As part of CBS’s ongoing commitment to both quality services and professional development of all its staff, all CBS support workers are required to hold a minimum ‘Certificate III in Individual Support’.  We have a large number of staff who hold specialised qualifications above this level which assists us in providing you with the right support at the right time.


Talk to us about your requirements and we will do everything in our power to assist you.

Why do people choose CBS?

At CBS we take pride in delivering quality services with care, compassion and understanding.  We take the time to listen to what you need and work with you to find solutions that suit your circumstances, ultimately putting you in control of your life.
