Anglicare is able to provide transport assistance if you or the person you care for is unable to access or use public transport. Transport can be used to attend medical appointments, go shopping, and participate in social activities or to simply enjoy some time out of the house.
We are funded through the Home and Community Care Program to provide transport services for clients to assist in maintaining their independence and enable them to enjoy life to the fullest.
In addition, we also maintain transport facilities at a number of our residential care facilities to enable our residents to enjoy regular social activities and outings.
