Our Purpose

Our Purpose

We see the ability within.

Our deep-seated commitment remains as true today as it did 80 years ago when StGiles first started. You see, we have a very unique culture. 
One that is built on respect and trust. 
One that nurtures and rewards. 
One that leads by example. 
We recognise individuals, their personalities and their strengths equally and treat people with the dignity and respect we all richly deserve. To be involved and accepted. 

We are always considering the ultimate well being of our community and focusing on positive outcomes. That everyone can experience the ‘ability’ to live, work, play, laugh, love, learn, achieve, feel worthwhile and be appreciated. To be involved and accepted.

More care
More help
More time.


Now there are more reasons to visit StGiles.

We have Tasmania’s best, most contemporary and fully equipped services in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie.

Our programs meet the needs of the NDIS participants. They provide the flexibility for individuals to make their own decisions to ensure their needs are met.

StGiles, in partnership with the Federal Government, has invested over $10 Million on developing our facilities for that very reason. We wanted a place that was warm, comforting, safe and most of all beneficial to the well being of people who needed personal support and exceptional care. And have a good old time along the way.

It’s why we’ve gone a long way too, to build a facilities where you’ll feel safe and sound. Like a nest. Where small steps can become big. Where you can learn, gain confidence and independence to flourish and grow.

We know a smile can go a long way.
