WHERE ARE WE?
We are located on the Central Coast of NSW with our base at Gosford providing Community Transport services to the residents of Gosford Local Government Area.
WHAT IS COMMUNITY TRANSPORT?
Community Transport is funded under the Home and Community Care Program (HACC) to provide transport to:
- Older and frail persons with moderate, severe or profound disability
- Younger persons with a moderate, severe or profound disability
- Carers of these people
Each client is assessed on their ability to use other means of transport and the level of assistance they require to complete their daily living tasks.
We also receive funding under the Community Transport Program (CTP) and we also receive some funding from Area Health under the Non Emergency Health Transport program.
