Community and family support in TasmaniaDoorways Centres

The Doorways Philosophy embodies The Salvation Army’s mission to transform lives and care for people without discrimination.

The Salvation Army’s Doorways Philosophy has a central focus on supporting clients in times of crisis, while concurrently helping clients build their indivdual capacity and resilience. In this context TSA is delivering services that have a focus on providing clients with a “hand up” not a “hand out”.

STeP 123 Literacy and Numeracy

The STeP 123 Literacy and Numeracy project is to be integrated into Doorways. This action research project has developed a number of tools, both online and programs that can be used by Doorways staff to identify clients with Literacy and Numeracy issues so that they can be referred to other internal and external programs that can help address these skill gaps.
