VTCTA also encourage members to review their organisational policies including risk management, infection control and business continuity in this new environment to ensure minimal impacts to service delivery continuity and wherever possible, contribute to the recovery of individuals, communities and services. We strongly encourage community transport organisations, staff, volunteers and members of the public to familiarise yourself with the process governments are taking to contain the virus, including practical things we all can do to help minimise transmission.

VTCTA is staffed by one part time employee, the Executive Officer, who is based at a home office so there are no changes required in response to COVID-19 from an operational perspective.

The VTCTA Committee is comprised of people from experienced community transport providers and are available for VTCTA members for any support or advice through the VTCTA Executive Officer.

If you have any questions the VTCTA can assist with please contact VTCTA EO Suzanne Phoenix on 0438 780 911 or info@vtcta.org.au
