Independence Australia staff provide more than a lift

The fund is supported by the staff at Independence Australia who have chosen to make regular donations.

On occasion, funds from The Independence Fund are put towards supported transport vouchers, assisting participants to attend counselling sessions.

At times and due to reasons beyond their control, participants with a disability are unable to meet with the Independence Australia psychology team. This might be due to inclement weather or an unreliable vehicle.

However, in providing the option of alternative transport, Independence Australia is able to ensure each participant is able to attend counselling sessions as they need. Thus, improving the mental health, physical well-being and social inclusion of people living with a disability.

It is heart-warming to know that the staff at Independence Australia are on board, providing personal contributions to ensure all participants have the opportunity to meet with the Independence Australia Psychology Team.
