Welcome to StGiles
StGiles is a dynamic, multi-faceted organisation that supports people of all ages with a wide range of needs. This includes children and adults with developmental delays and disabilities and those who have acquired a disability as the result of illness or accident.
It is our aim that everyone can experience the ability to live, work, play, laugh, love, learn, achieve, to feel worthwhile and to be appreciated. We have developed a range programs and services to help make this happen.
We have our own teams of Allied Health Professionals and Support Workers who work at large in out-reach and in specialist campuses in Hobart and Launceston.
Changes to Our Tasmanian Government Funded Children's Therapy Services
Over many years the Tasmanian Government has funded StGiles to provide therapy services to children with developmental delays and disability in the North and South of Tasmania.
From 1st July 2019 this will change.
We have always strived to ensure that the services we provide are delivered by high quality therapists and achieve the best outcomes for the families and children we work with. This will not change and we will continue to service our community with the same passion that has driven our organisation for over 80 years.
The Tasmanian Government will continue to fund some Children’s Therapy Services at St Giles. This will predominantly be therapy that is unlikely to be available through the Early Childhood Early Intervention Partners or the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
