About Us

The Tenants' Union of Tasmania Inc. is a not for profit community organisation offering free services including tenancy advice, advocacy and referrals. We also offer free community legal education and training in issues relating to tenancy. We are an incorporated body run by members through an elected Management Committee, and staffed by employees and volunteers.

The telephone advice line, client advocacy and support services are supported by the Tasmanian State Government through grants administered by Housing Tasmania, Department of Health and Human Services.

A Commonwealth grant provided by the Attorney General's Department and administered by the Legal Aid Commission of Tasmania funds our community legal education and training programs.

The Tenants' Union is a member of the National Association of Tenant Organisations (NATO), National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLC), International Union of Tenants (IUT), Tasmanian Association of Community Legal Centres (TACLC), Shelter Tasmania and TasCOSS.
