Services - Transport Disadvantaged
What is Community Transport?
Our organisation is funded by Transport for NSW to provide Community Transport, which assists transport disadvantaged people in our community. Community transport provides access to shopping, medical and professional appointments, recreation and social contact, for people who cannot use regular public transport or who have limited or no access to private transport.
Community Transport in our community
Wee Waa Community Care Service can provide individual and group transport locally and regionally for all residents of the Narrabri Shire, with a special emphasis on Youth and Older People. We have a fortnightly return transport service that runs between Wee Waa and Tamworth, stopping at all towns and villages along the route, and a fortnightly return service between Wee Waa and Narrabri. Taxi Vouchers are available for Older People who live in, or regularly visit, Narrabri.
Accessing Community Transport
You can contact us by either phone or email to let us know about your transport needs and to see if we are able to assist. If you are new to Wee Waa Community Care Service we will need to complete a brief assessment, to ensure you are eligible for services. Groups and organisations, especially those working with youth in the Narrabri Shire, are welcome to get in touch with our office about their transport needs.
Health Related Transport
We are funded by Hunter New England Local Health District to provide non-emergency health related transport (NeHRT) to people who reside in Wee Waa, Gwabegar, Pilliga and surrounding areas. NeHRT is able to assist you with transport to local medical services and ancillary health providers, and to specialist health facilities across the region. Transport is available to any resident who is transport disadvantaged and needs to access medical care.
