STAR Community Services is celebrating 25 years of supporting the local community. STAR is a not-for-profit, community organisation providing a range of NDIS and Aged Care services in the across SE Queensland and is now expanding into the Ipswich West, Lockyer Valley, Warwick and Toowoomba regions.
STAR provide personalised transportation services for our elderly and for people with disability to attend medical and social appointments, and ensures they are able to remain active in the community. STAR Transport is affordable, reliable and safe.
Due to the growing need for transport services STAR needs to recruit new Volunteer Owner Drivers in this region for their Transport Team.
The hours are very flexible. Volunteer Owner Drivers can volunteer for a few hours a day/s a week. You can start early in the morning (from 6am) or later in the afternoon! We can offer hours that suit your lifestyle.
This is a Centrelink approved activity.
It is very important to STAR that the Volunteer drivers provide the highest level of safety and service to our clients. We will provide training to all drivers.
STAR offers the standard ATO rate of .78 cents per km for vehicle usage (this is non-taxable).
