Transport Services and Social Activities
Community transport responds to the needs of those with limited access to conventional means of public and private transport. Our personalised, friendly and reliable community transport options can help you meet important commitments, attend appointments, do your shopping or visit the library. For further information please feel free to contact Dennis Murphy, Transport Coordinator on 8374 7791.

We offer a range of opportunities to help you maintain your interests and stay engaged.

Our team also facilitates the Cumberland Crew social group aimed at providing fun and engaging activities for residents aged under 65 with a disability.
