People Helping People to Independence

If you need to attend a medical appointment but are having difficulty with transport, we operate a service which may entitle you to a free or subsidised return trip.

Please ring the Franklin Family Support Services, for further details and to see if you qualify for a subsidy.

For non-subsidised trips rates have been set at 73c per km and parking costs need to be paid by the clients.

FRANKLIN FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES has a number of volunteers who give many hours of service. Our volunteer drivers however, must be reimbursed for travelling costs such as petrol, maintenance and depreciation of vehicles. Thank you for your understanding of this.
