Since 1998 we have been mitigating social exclusion by providing Shared Transport to people with a disability, and seniors over 65 years of age, living independently in the community. These services help ease congestion on our roads and provide a more environmentally friendly and inexpensive means of transport for the public.
Our Shared Transport option is a door-to-door service at a low, flat rate to any destination on the Gold Coast. Clients can use this service to see their doctor, attend events, visit the library, go out for lunch or even just grab a few things from the shop.
Clients are collected from their homes and transported in the comfort of one of our fleet vehicles by our team of volunteer drivers. Those requiring assistance may also benefit from our team of volunteer carers.
Our caring team are regularly trained in senior first aid, CPR, industry updates, alcohol and drug policies and manual handling, to ensure they are well qualified to deal with any situation that might arise. They are the front line of our operations and make sure our clients are safely transported to their destination in clean and comfortable vehicles.
Our calendar of Social Outings takes in the best of south east Queensland and northern NSW with trips to art galleries, museums, restaurants, gardens and more.
Social Outings are offered on a weekly basis to clients over 65 as a means of getting out and participating in a social environment. Services are frequently at capacity so be sure to book your spot early.
To receive our Social Outings calendar please call us on 07 5526 5288.
