Colville Place

Colville Place provides 24-hour supported accommodation for young people aged 12-15 who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.

The service aims to support young people to develop their current skills and abilities; to make connections within the community; to reunify with family, to obtain long term, sustainable housing; and to reach their full potential.

Colville Place supports young Tasmanians by focussing on early intervention and prevention. The aim of this is to limit time spent within emergency accommodation, to encourage reunification as the desired outcome if safe to do so, and to aid young people to break the cycle and become independent of services.

The team obtained community grants to develop an Education Space and sensory room. The sensory room supports residents with emotional regulation. 

In 2022-23, Colville Place has been generously supported by Cricket Tasmania, Kingborough Helping Hands, Rotary, Country Women’s Association, Bunnings, Rotary Club Salamanca, QantasLink and Queens Bakery.

Colville Place has been running within Colony 47 for five years and is funded by the Tasmanian Government via Homes Tasmania.
