Eligible groups will receive subsidised transport support for their regular travel needs throughout the year as well as access to FREE and fully accredited volunteer training programs.
If you work with older people at risk and are finding accessible transport availability or cost an issue for your group or project – please apply now as demand is expected to be high.
