The Build Up Tassie Chari­ty Home is currently being built by St Joseph Affordable Homes in Herdsmans Cove, on land gifted by the Tasma­nian Government. More than 35 local businesses and indi­viduals have pledged labour and materials to support con­struction of the four-bedroom home. The construction site doubles as a training space for current Build Up Tassie participants and St Joseph Affordable Homes apprentic­es. Build Up Tassie is a free pre-employment program de­veloped and operated by Cen­tacare Evolve Housing. Build Up Tassie supports young and vulnerable job seekers to gain meaningful employment in the building industry. Once construction is complete, the new home will be publicly sold. Proceeds from the sale will be used to fund the train­ing of up to 50 young people through the Build Up Tassie program.
