Referral List for Protective Division

The Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, as an independent Statutory Authority, is unable to provide parties appearing before it with legal or other professional advice. The Protective Division of the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has therefore compiled a list of organisations who may be able to provide legal and other professional support to individuals attending hearings in the Mental Health and Guardianship streams of the Tribunal. This referral sheet will be distributed along with other key Tribunal documentation and is intended to assist with directing people to bodies able to provide them with support prior to, during, and following a Tribunal hearing.

The Tribunal reiterates that this is not necessarily an exhaustive list, and should not be taken as the Tribunal endorsing or recommending one organisation over another. The Tribunal hopes this assists the Tasmanian community with seeking help and assistance when required and encourages all parties appearing before the Tribunal to seek help and assistance if required.
