The program

Good community connections are essential for all aspects of health, especially as we age. Red Cross provides a transport service for eligible people who are elderly or for those living with a disability. Volunteer drivers help improve the lives of some of our most vulnerable people by facilitating access to health services and social engagements. Last year our volunteers completed 16,255 trips in Tasmania and we are looking for a volunteer driver to join our team!
