LINK is committed to assisting older people and people with a disability and their carers to maintain an active and engaged social and civic life. This is facilitated by assisting clients to access social and recreational activities that fosters their capacity to ‘age in place’.

Volunteer Drivers follow a detailed schedule to provide transport to LINK clients to enable them to participate in their community.
