Healthy Tasmania was founded by Tasmanian sisters Lucy Byrne and Penny Terry.
We work with our partners on a wide range of projects to improve the individual, social and economic health of our communities.
We like to call ourselves community organisers - we connect people and groups with similar goals to more efficiently and effectively solve a problem - we are the glue.
We started Healthy Tasmania because we want to help people live the best life they can.
We want people to have good personal health, a broad set of life skills and proudly live in communities that are thriving.
We’re sisters. We’ve been working together to solve problems since Penny was born!
We’ve travelled the world, we’ve lived and worked all over and we’ve chosen to come home to help grow our community and share our great stories widely (and loudly).
