Cabonne Community Transport Service is a non government community based scheme, accountable to the Ageing and Disability Department and Transport for NSW.
This service is funded under the Community Home Support Program (CHSP), Community Transport Program (CTP) and Western NSW Local Heath District.
The CHSP program caters for eligible 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 eligible disadvantaged people who have no other form of transport living in their own homes.
Transport services are provided to assist in maintaining independence for those who are transport disadvantaged to appointments or social outings and Western NSW Health 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.
