Health literacy learning organisations Tasmania toolkit website
Resource Description

The HELLO TAS! toolkit, developed by Tasmanian Council of Social Service (TasCOSS), aims to support your organisation’s health literacy journey to better help people to understand information, find their way through the health and community services’ system, and get the services they need.

The toolkit provides:

  • a step-by-step process for doing a self-assessment and developing a Health Literacy Action Plan
  • practical tools to help you with these tasks
  • links to accreditation standards, resources and further reading material.

It will help you see what you are already doing well and what else you might do to further enhance your services. It can also help you to meet quality improvement standards relating to outcomes for clients, consumer rights, evidence-based practice, and community development. 

This toolkit has been developed by community sector workers for community sector and smaller community health organisations.
