We need your help

At Community Care and Transport, we care about our community, our volunteers and our staff. We are "Care in Motion".

We believe that every aged person is entitled to live their life to the fullest by having genuine and effective community engagement.

In South Australia we have the oldest population in Australian with something like 18%+ of our population over the age of 65. And it is even worse on the Yoke Peninsula with this cohort being over 30% therein lays part of our challenge

In the Yorke and Mid-North Peninsula there is no public transport system and limited access to reliable and regular medical facilities. Therefore, as a result each year thousands of our elderly residents go without. They go without transport to vital medical appointments and services; they are disadvantaged as a result of this. They become socially isolated, they lose contact with family and friends. Simple things such as a trip to the local grocery store or a cup of tea or coffee with friends just does not happen.

There is no bigger responsibility that we must share as a community than to ensure that our aged residents are well taken care of and that they have an equal and fair chance to enjoy life and to be engaged in the community of which they should be an integral part.

If we as a community do not address these issues the incredibly sad side effects of this is that our elderly become subject to isolation, depression, lower self-esteem and worth. No-one should be subject to this in their twilight years! Surely you do not want this situation when you are older, nor would you want it for your family and friends.

If the world were perfect our elderly would be better cared for, they would have all their transport needs met, they would be socially engaged, they would be out and about on social trips with their friends, their medical needs would just be a formality, how good would that be?

No matter what, our aged residents should be able to move towards their everyday goals and be able to participate in a meaningful life.

Community Care and Transport Incorporated have committed and dedicated ourselves to work tirelessly to ensure that either through our Community Visitors Scheme, providing friendship and companionship, or alternatively with our Community Transport Service, we are empowering our elderly to be socially engaged and to meet medical needs where possible, both locally and across regions including Adelaide. They should be valued and respected.

We believe that our aged residents should have effective community engagement, we need to actively listen to them, and helping them with what matters most in their lives.

Community Care and Transport Incorporated helps where others cannot or will not! We provide transport and home visits through government funding, council contributions and donations which we are grateful for.

Through our shared values we are dedicated to making a difference, improving quality of life, treating our clients with the respect and privacy they deserve and hopefully, fulfilling their lives as best they can with our help.

Our plan is to “Build A Better Community Care and Transport Incorporated” service. We wish to build upon our current community transport and community visitor scheme services so that no one goes without. We need to raise awareness of our service so that everyone in our community knows who to turn to when requiring transportation and trying to avoid social isolation. To do this we will clearly need to raise more funds and to have more volunteers join our wonderful community minded team.

We have been providing a service to our community in some form for over 40 years now! We started from very humble beginnings with several local churches and their congregation in our community recognising the need to ensure that our aged residents were taken care of and that they were not socially isolated. From this initial meek concept of ensuring that care was at the forefront of everything when it came to caring for our aged community, things really started to progress.

Year on Year we have steadily and surely improved and grown our community service. We are well recognised as providing a secure, safe and credible service to those elderly in our community that are in need.

Sadly, despite our best-efforts gaps unfortunately still exist. We still need help from the community that we serve day-in day-out, we need help from like minded people and business partners who are genuinely community minded and have respect for our aged and elderly community citizens.

Therefore, as the late John Lennon once wrote, “…You may say I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will be as one…”.

Please join us in helping the elderly in our community to fulfill the life they are entitled to and have earnt.

We need more volunteers and we also need your financial support. This can come in many ways, just your time if you wish to volunteer or if you are able to help, the smallest of donations would be most welcome and appreciated.
