This programme is designed to get people with Cerebral Palsy engaging with their community. It is a voucher system that helps fund the part of the transport companies fare that is not covered by the Total Mobility Scheme.
The Society can supply vouchers to the value of approximately $200 per person (per 6 months) to approved applicants. The vouchers can be used for transport at the members discretion. This will equate to the average member being able to double the number of trips currently taken each year.
List of Transport Companies
The Society has entered into agreements with selected transport companies to accept these vouchers. If there is a transport company in your area accepting our vouchers, then the programme is operating there. If there isnt, then contact us and we can assess whether to approach a transport company in your area to join our programme.
