TasRec creates and provides links to a diverse range of community-based recreational and social activities, events, and opportunities for skill building and creative expression, all with a focus on enjoyment and wellbeing.
The TasRec philosophy is all about inclusion, building connections, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and having fun!
We develop a monthly calendar of events in each region of Tasmania that is guided by consumers’ feedback around what they would like to do. Some activities continue all year ‘round while others change with the seasons, providing a broad range of ongoing favourites and fresh opportunities throughout the year.
Programs and activities available through TasRec include:
- Group outings
- Life skills sessions
- Cooking & food education sessions
- Art groups
- Exercise & relaxation sessions
- Just Move
Just Move is an exercise program for participants with lived experience of mental ill-health and now runs as part of the Tas Rec program.
It is a structured exercise program run by Exercise Physiologists and Personal Trainers in a private gym facility to allow for maximum privacy and safety of all participants.
The sessions run for one hour and consist of circuit-based movements that will be tailored to suit all ability levels. Support workers or family members are encouraged to attend the sessions with the participants.
Anyone with a diagnosed mental health condition may join one of the Just Move groups. Further referral information can be found below. We’ll just need to get some details, including your medical information before you start.
