Support Randwick Waverley Community Transport Limited
The community can assist us in a range of ways with their gifts and talents. We appreciate the assistance of our volunteers who enable us to offer a safe and engaging community service. Many of our clients and their family also assist us with philanthropic gifts and bequests. We receive this support as these donors recognise the outstanding value to the community their gift proffers.
Randwick Waverley Community Transport Limited is a local Social Enterprise assisting the community for 31 years in the Eastern Suburbs. In addition to assisting people over 65 to live independently in their own homes, and alleviating transport disadvantage; over the last few years we have established Eastern Sydney’s pre-eminent NDIS Transport Service.
You may know us as the local experts in transport disadvantaged, aged and frail, low mobility, low vision transport. Of the nearly 60,000 trips we make locally each year, we are the key enabler to assist people to access their community.
As a leading disability Access Service we are accredited by Transport for NSW; meaning our drivers and vehicle assistants are history checked and trained to a professional standard.
We have an exception track record of contributing efficiently to our community. We have a very high ‘Return on Social Investment’ from research conducted by The University of NSW. Our SROI has operated consistently between 15 and 18 times the capital invested. This means for every $1000 we have deployed the community benefits by up to $18,000. This contribution is an outstanding achievement for our stakeholders. Your support has added tens of millions of value to the local community.
Our 30 years of expertise in transporting people with a disability ensures we can facilitate safe, secure, caring, reliable and prompt travel for your family. This is evidenced by our meeting the Authorisation Standards of Point to Point Transport Act from 1 February 2018.
Our Service caters for people who have a disability. Our protocol is to advise us of your particular assistance needs. We provide a service with ‘Person to Person’ Transfer. (This may add a few minutes to the time of a trip) We do not assume our clients are Traffic Aware. We do not leave our clients unattended. Our drivers are trained in disability awareness. Our clients tell us they value our reliable, empathetic and caring staff.
We are accredited by Transport for NSW; meaning our drivers and vehicle assistants are history checked and trained to a professional standard, and are subject to regular independent “Third Party Audit” compliance checks. We encourage carers to accompany participants. Our policy is that carers travel at no cost
Why We Need Your Help
We continuously require funds, beyond our operating income, for developing our local social infrastructure. We seek the support of our community as a volunteer, social venture co-investor, or as a philanthropic supporter. This will assist us to achieve our fundraising target and further improve our Social Return on Investment targets.
Our community is increasingly asking us to organise transport to social and community events, including trips to Clubs. Demand is growing for our Thursday Art Gallery, Friday Lunches and Saturday Social Trips. As well as our low mobility access tours to Vision Australia, Sculptures by the Sea, Vivid Sydney, Whale Watching, Botanic Gardens and the Art Gallery. We hope to continue this community engagement innovation.
The NDIS operation requires skills, training and additional equipment to meet the service standards and comply with our status as an Accredited Transport Service.
We now need to invest in our capability and build our expertise in safe and caring low mobility and wheelchair transport. Our goal is to have a trained carer on every vehicle.
To assist us to meet the increased demand we plan to improve or fleet capacity to reduce congestion bottlenecks in the sector. This will enable people require some care or assistance to confidently travel in comfort and safety. We now seek your support.
