CTST has on average 400 volunteer drivers.
Our drivers offer their availability to drive for a few hours a week to full time equivalent. Availability is monitored through a rostering system.
Drivers provide transport to eligible consumers either door-to-door locally, or long distances, to attend their social activities or non-emergency medical appointments.
The volunteer team combined contribute around 100,000 of their time annually, equating to approximately $2,900.00 in dollar value.
Our volunteers are reimbursed for their out of pocket expenses, including their travel to collect a CTST vehicle, and home again. Volunteers are also reimbursed for meals when driving long distance that require extensive travel.
CTST also provides our drivers with driver training, their National Police Check and Working With Vulnerable People checks.
CTST recently implemented a volunteer recognition program that acknowledges the valuable contribution of our volunteers. Acknowledgement is provided through an awards program, as well as two volunteer functions per year.
If you would like to become a volunteer driver with CTST, and would like further information please refer to the volunteer brochure, or contact our team on 1800 871 033.
