2020 ABC Giving Tree Appeal Launched

The ABC Giving Tree Appeal has launched for 2020!

Providing service to Tasmanians for over 180 years.

Founded in September 1834, we are the oldest continuously operating welfare agency in Australia.

Launceston Benevolent Society is an independent, non-religious, non-profit organisation which has been part of driving positive social change in Tasmania for three centuries. The Society provides emergency support and assistance for people in need in the form of food vouchers, food hampers, clothing, budget and financial advice.

Our goal is to help people to overcome the barriers preventing them from participating fully in society. By helping to build healthy, inclusive communities we can improve the quality of life of all Tasmanians.
