TACSI is committed to innovation that spans from idea, through to implementation.
We work with partners and communities to incubate and replicate interventions that work and demonstrate an alternative future. Our focus isn’t on the replication alone, but how you create the conditions for a system to adopt new innovation.
“Scaling social innovation and its impact requires actions beyond replication, and calls for a shift in mindsets, practices and behaviours.”
Created in 2009 and currently in scaling with partner Uniting Communities is such a program. We created a program to address families in crisis by engaging and training families who have been through tough times to help other families going through tough times. Family by Family is now a Good Design Australia Best in Class award winner.
A peer to peer program connecting carers of people with life limiting illnesses with other carers with lived experience of looking after a loved one. The program acknowledges that each experience of caring for a loved one is different and connects shared experiences as supports for carers in their own journeys.
We’re rapidly prototyping a new model of intensive family support and connecting families across South Australia to create a Virtual Village of support for families who feel isolated, stressed, overwhelmed – and have very few options for support around them.
