Older Victorians are not getting their fair share of Federal funding for Community Transport. Compared to the rest of Australia, Victoria is grossly underfunded. Our funding needs to be increased 8 times to achieve parity with other States.
Please sign the petition http://chng.it/kRcYZ7JnPN and demand the Australian government and the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt raise the funding for Community Transport to an equitable level.
Accessible and assisted transport makes lives worth living – it is a vital connection to services, support, doctors, community and family.
Evidence shows that connected lives are better lives, AND result in a lower overall cost to the community.
Victoria’s disastrously low funding levels are a historical anomaly. They are wreaking havoc with our elderly. It must be corrected now.
Vulnerable Victorians are missing out!
