Volunteer Community Driver - ThomastownLINK Community & Transport
Who We Are
LINK Community Transport (LINK) is a not-for-profit Company that services, benefits and supports diverse community groups, inclusive of the ageing population, people of all abilities and their carers (including those with culturally diverse backgrounds) by providing life-enriching services through effective, accessible, and flexible social and home support.
For over 40 years we have helped thousands of Melbournians live better, more independent and connected lives through the provision of community transport services, domestic assistance, home maintenance services and carer respite. Our tailored transport services provide the missing link - connecting clients to services, as well as to their family and social networks. Our volunteer drivers do a lot more than just transport people to a destination - they are a vital connection and support. Simply put - we drive communities together!
Some reasons our customers use our transport are:
• Medical appointments • Assisted activities at Shopping Centres/Supermarket • Community and Social Outings • Social and Cultural Club activities • Aquatic and Recreational Activities
