Technology for Ageing and Disability (TADSA) is the story of an organisation that grew out of the hearts and hands of skilled volunteers since 1978; and in typical Australian fashion work started being done with the proverbial tin can and a bit of barbed wire, out of their back yard sheds.
These dedicated and committed people came from very diverse backgrounds – the public service, medicine, management, academia, the military, business, skilled trades and engineering, and they all share a common thread, a passion for giving practical help that makes a difference.
TADSA has come a long way since its early days. Last year volunteers and the board celebrated TADSA’s 40th birthday which also coincided with the roll-out of the NDIS in South Australia which has brought with it some serious and significant future challenges to the business of delivering bespoke and sometimes complex Assistive Technology (AT) solutions and we are asking you to help us be able to continue to deliver these solutions.
For more than 20 years TADSA has received funding from the state government to assist the organisation to provide its unique and highly individualised services. This funding will cease on 30th June 2019 and there is a time-lag between government funding ending and the realisation of funds through the NDIS so we are embarking on a corporate fundraising campaign. Please help us to help others and consider making a donation today.
