A team of volunteer drivers provide door to door transport for eligible residents to
attend medical and allied health appointments, and social support activities when other
transport options are unavailable or unsuitable.
Clients are picked up from their home and driven to their appointment. The volunteer driver will wait for the client until
the appointment finishes and then drive the client home.
This service enables residents who are isolated in their own home an opportunity to attend much need social activities and health appointments. In some cases, the visit from one of volunteer drivers is the only social connection some clients have during a fortnight period.
A wonderful team of dedicated volunteer drivers sustain this service and if it was not for their ongoing support and devotion to volunteering this service would not be available. We request a small donation for this service to cover our expenses.
Allied Health appointments are those that compliment your general medical appointments. There are many different types of allied health services and some of these include: Podiatry, Dental, X-ray, Pathology*
