The Tully Support Centre (TSC) is a non-profit community-based organisation that provides vital support services to individuals and families across the Cassowary Coast. The TSC is a recognised provider of community based, high quality, accessible and inclusive support services, which acknowledge the uniqueness of the communities that make up that region. We strive to make a lasting difference in the lives of those we serve. As a member of our Volunteer Management Committee, you will play a crucial role in shaping and driving our initiatives, ensuring we continue to meet the evolving needs of the community and continue to provide the essential services our region needs. Without our Management Committee, we cannot deliver our services.
The TSC was formed in 1991 and services communities throughout the Cassowary Coast region providing Domestic and Family Violence services, early intervention family support services, individual support, community engagement and development activities, emergency relief pantry, Tully Centrelink Agent and the Tully Youth Centre. On average, the TSC has contact with around 350 community members per week across all programs and delivery locations, approximately 35% of whom identify as Indigenous.
In recent years, the TSC has grown rapidly and now has an annual turnover upwards of $1.5M. The current committee has been focussing on developing the policies, procedures and systems to enable TSC take its next big step.
The TSC has identified several opportunities moving forward including land acquisition, a DFV shelter, and a social enterprise. We recognise that to effectively manage this growth, we will need to expand our management committee.

The only skills you need are a desire to make a difference in our community, an enquiring mind, a preparedness to embrace change and to share your knowledge, experiences and insight into how the TSC can best deliver services to our local community.
