TASC Social Justice Services

TASC’s Social Justice Services operate alongside TASC’s Legal Services, providing a holistic service to our clients.

The Social Justice Services within TASC have been known by several names, including the Queensland Social Justice Centre or QSJC and before that the Queensland Criminal Justice Centre.  The QSJC was a web-based resource that focused on areas of criminal law, disability law and disability advocacy.  It expanded to provide direct service provision and offer a range of supports to focus on positive outcomes for people supported by TASC.

Throughout our long history of support for people in vulnerable circumstances, TASC’s Social Justice Services have promoted the principles of Social JusticeAccess to services, equal and effective rights, and the rights of individuals to participate in the decisions that govern their lives.
