Helping hands are needed at the Community Transport Company (CTC) this year. They are looking for some special people in the Nambucca Valley willing to help those who can’t drive to get where they need or want to go.
CTC Chief Executive Officer, Bethany Langford, said the organisation provides a unique and valued service to many residents by providing a way to get to everyday appointments and social activities.
“Our volunteers are the heart of our organisation, they become part of our family, and we find by helping others, our volunteers get back more than what they give,” Ms Langford said.
“Safety and training is a big part of being a community transport volunteer; we provide all the training and equipment needed for our volunteers to do their job and continue this training throughout your time with us.”
CTC has over 5,600 clients who live throughout the Coffs Coast. In the Nambucca and Bellingen regions last year they provided over 95,000 trips to people who are elderly, disabled or financially disadvantaged.
There is an urgent call for volunteers from the Dorrigo and Woolgoolga local areas.
To become a volunteer, you must:
- Hold a current unrestricted NSW Drivers’ Licence.
- Undergo a RMS Driver History Check and a Police Check.
- Be fit to drive.
If you are looking for an environment where you can help and meet new people while travelling around the mid-north coast region, they would like to hear from you. CTC is after caring, patient individuals who enjoy driving and being around people.
