After weeks of uncertainty, Colony 47’s mental health drop-in centre in Hobart will close.

Colony 47 could no longer afford to run the centre, but the service will continue through a new provider, Richmond Fellowship Tasmania.

The service will operate in the Richmond Fellowship’s centre on Patrick Street, from next month.

In a statement, the Premier, Lara Giddings, said Colony 47 and the Richmond Fellowship would work together to ensure a smooth transition for clients.
