Well Neigbourhood House Week is almost upon us, and hasn't it come around quickly this year. The NHT Team is looking forward to hearing about your celebrations.
NHT have a number of online forums coming up in the next months so get your questions ready! There is also a range of useful training available online at the moment so why not take the opportunity to broaden your skills. 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Update

The State Government has established a PPE supply register to assist Tasmanian businesses who need it to keep operating safely.  The register lists manufacturers & suppliers' products for local businesses to access. The register is only temporary & will cease once the demand has subsided. To access the list on the register, visit

While we are talking PPE, NHT received an email from Gienic who has been supplying the Dental Industry with a range of infection control consumables. But since the Dental Industry has been restricted by Covid-19, they are now offering their range to the Healthcare Industry & Essential Services. To  find out what they have on offer visit or email them at and maybe mention NHT.


Are you ready for some fun on Thursday 14 May??

Don't forget to celebrate Neighbourhood House Week starting next week. On Thursday from 10:30 am join the NHT Team as we go through the wonderful offerings including videos that you have sent us. We will also be sealing your letters in the Time Capsule (we are still accepting emailed versions of your letters - we promise not to read them) for inclusion. A BIG shout out to the team at St Helens Neighbourhood House for making the Time Capsule.
So if you want to be part of the fun, email Louise at to get the link.
