Phoenix Centre Services
The Phoenix Centre was established in 1992 and is the Tasmanian member of the Forum of Australian Services for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (FASSTT). A FASSTT agency is located in each state and territory of Australia. FASSTT agencies provide a range of support services for people who have experienced torture and/or trauma prior to arrival in Australia. These services include counselling and advocacy, natural therapies, community development, and education. In addition, the Phoenix Centre is the Tasmanian member of the International Rehabilitation Council for survivors of Torture (IRCT). The Phoenix Centre receives funding from DOHA (under the Program of Assistance for Survivors of Torture and Trauma and the National Suicide Prevention Program), FaHCSIA (Families in Cultural Transition (FICT) program) and the DHHS (Tasmanian Transcultural Mental Health Network and Early Intervention projects).
The Phoenix Centre has recently been funded via a subcontract with Anglicare for the delivery of the FaHCSIA funded Personal Helpers and Mentors Program to members of refugee and humanitarian entrant background communities.
The Phoenix Centre has offices in Hobart and Launceston. Phoenix Centre staff in Launceston are located within the MRC North.
