About TaskForce

Since 1973 TaskForce has provided specialist support for people in serious need in Victoria.

The people who access our services have experienced significant disadvantage or a crisis in their lives and as a result are prevented from reaching their potential. Many have fallen through society’s cracks and all too often have been placed in the "too hard" basket. They are people who have a long term range of complex issues or a single issue with a high degree of severity.

Our core services focus on addressing social issues of addiction, unemployment, mental health and high risk taking behaviours, supporting our clients to transition back into "mainstream" services and supports. We assist young people, adults and families. Funding for TaskForce is primarily through Federal and State Government and Local Government tenders, plus your donations.

  • Our Vision, Mission & Values

Our Vision

Giving life changing opportunities for those most in need.

Our Mission

How do you get a second chance when often society doesn’t care about you in the first place? TaskForce is committed to creating positive outcomes for people disengaged or living on the margins of the community. Whether they have been born into poverty and disadvantage, overwhelmed by a major crisis, trapped by addiction, mental health, circumstance or are simply seen by some as "too difficult to deal with", it is our goal to help provide them with the life changing opportunity to meet their full potential no matter how tough the circumstances. We never give up on giving people a chance to realise their true potential.

Our Values

Our Values are the cornerstone of the TaskForce culture. They reflect the behaviours that shape how we work with our clients, our partners and each other thereby creating a culture that maximises the organisation’s effectiveness and relevance.

Client Centred:

We strive to support our clients and their extended networks to change their circumstances. We will collaborate so that our full range of services and supports are wrapped around them enabling each to reach their full potential.

Innovation and Best Practice:

We will be cutting edge in all that we do leading to evidence-based best practice within the sector. Our people will be passionate and motivated to make a difference.

Thought Leadership:

We are committed to addressing the tough moral challenges faced and sensitivities that abound in our sector, leading consequent debate and adapting as broader positions held by society evolve.

Honesty and Integrity:

We do our utmost to communicate openly, honestly and respectfully. We collaborate and share accountability with colleagues and clients alike. We acknowledge that as we learn, mistakes may be made but that this learning will make us stronger.

Trust, Respect and Self-care:

We collaborate to create a work environment built on trust and respect where our people and consortium partners are supported and challenged to lead best practice. We recognise that responsibility for self-care is also a foundation to achieve excellence in the services we deliver.
