Welcome

Welcome to the VICTAS Community Transport Association (VTCTA) website incorporating community transport in Tasmania and Victoria. The sector is presently poised to confront the challenges and opportunities attached to commercial passenger vehicle reforms in Victoria, and federal reforms in aged and disability services via the My Aged Care (MAC) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) systems. The VTCTA continues to be at the forefront of these developments, advocating and working with government and service providers to improve transport for people and communities across the states of Tasmania and Victoria.

Not all people in the community are able to access public or private transport services. This maybe because of a disability that impacts on their mobility, they live in a geographically isolated place or they cannot afford the cost of transport. Community transport (CT) provides services, either direct transport or support to access public transport, for people who are transport disadvantaged. Community transport is affordable, flexible, accessible and adaptable to individuals’ needs enabling them to participate in daily life. Contact your local CT Service for further information.

As the community transport peak body, we’re here to represent the interests of people with transport needs from all parts of Tasmania and Victoria, and all kinds of community transport providers. Our membership and the composition of our Management Committee reflects this diversity with Lyndon Stevenson in the position of Chair and Rita Lang as Secretary and Treasurer and acting Deputy Chair and our other members from far and wide across both states, including non-government service providers and local government.

As we work together to improve community transport in both states, we welcome input from everybody with positive ideas for change. Through the mechanisms established on this site, or via an old fashioned phone call to one or more of the VTCTA Committee members, we’d welcome your input. If your organisation is not already a VTCTA member, you might also like to consider joining and making the VTCTA an even stronger and more effective voice for positive change.

Sharing gratitude from VTCTA members to all their volunteers during National Volunteer Week. Mpower Inc.

Community Transport is powered by Volunteers.We are celebrating #nationalvolunteersweek - because we know our local communities wouldn’t thrive if it weren’t for the generous inviduals who give their time, skills and knowledge to causes, events, clubs, groups and committees that improve where we live.
.
Giving to others is a strong and enduring value of the Sinclair Wilson Group. We have many across our five offices who give what they can, above and beyond their lives at work and at home.
.
Managing Accountant Kerrie Hughson is a dedicated board member for Mpower Inc., a community-based support agency that provides aged and disability services and support across south west Victoria.
.
Now the board’s treasurer, Kerrie’s passion for and involvement in Mpower came from her own, first-hand experience with what the organisation did to keep people connected with their local community.
.
“I saw the work Mpower did - and the profound difference they made - when my Nana used their carer support services over many years while she was caring full-time for my Pop. Of course, since being involved at Board level, I’ve gained even more knowledge and understanding of the work Mpower’s incredible team does, and how important it is to have a service like this in the community.
.
“Seeing the difference Mpower made to people I loved was my inspiration do something as well. We can’t all be carers, or have the skills that are needed for that kind of day-to-day physical support. But if I can offer my skills and knowledge to make sure the service thrives, then I feel I have played a small part in helping others."
.
This week, we want to say thanks to the likes of Kerrie and the other members of our community who give selflessly and generously to make their community a better place. While we know they never do it for the recognition, we love that this week gives us a chance to celebrate their contribution.
