The Community Services Industry Plan 2021‑2031 is a strategic approach to growing the skills and capacity of community services workers.
It provides the overarching framework to guide strategic industry planning and development through three strategic priorities: Local Solutions for Tasmanians, Workforce Development and Training and Leading for Impact.
This support to the community services sector also recognises the ongoing road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for targeted investment in the community service industry workforce to meet increased demand for services.
The Tasmanian Government has provided $3.3 million over three years towards the strategic priority Workforce Development and Training to assist in meeting the community services industry projections of an additional 4 000 jobs by 2024.
The funding will be administered by the Department of State Growth.
