Welcome to Colony 47

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

We work closely with local communities at a grass roots level and with our many partners to ensure that we achieve our mission – to create a fairer community, eliminate disadvantage and improve the lives of Tasmanians.
