Welcome to Colony 47

Colony 47 provides support to over 20,000 Tasmanian children, young people and families every year.

For over 40 years Colony 47 has worked to ensure that support is given to those that need it most. We help individuals and families develop solutions and find support to build better lives and break the cycle of disadvantage. We work closely with local communities at a grass roots level and with our many partners to ensure that we achieve our vision of a thriving, connected and diverse community where no-one is left behind.
