Cabonne Community Transport Service is a non government community based scheme, accountable to the Ageing and Disability Department and the NSW Department of Transport.
This service is funded under the Home and Community Care (HACC) Program, Community Transport Program (CTP) and Greater Western Area Health Service (GWAHS).
The HACC program caters for frail aged people with moderate, severe, or profound disability, younger disabled and their carers who are living in their own homes and the CTP program caters for the transport of disadvantaged people who have no other form of transport.
Transport services are provided to assist in maintaining independence for those who are transport disadvantaged to appointments or social outings and GWAHS program caters for residents to attend hospital or medical appointments referred by medical professionals.
Community Transport does not transport clients who are in cared facilities such as nursing homes or hostels or clients who already access aged care packages at home. It will not transport clients to employment or education facilities.
