People helping people to independence in the Franklin district

If you need to attend a medical appointment and are experiencing difficulty with transport or affording the cost of transport, we are contracted by the DHB to operate a service which could entitle you to subsidised return transport and could even entitle you to a free service.

Franklin Family Support has many Volunteer Drivers who, using their own vehicle, give up their free time to help patients get to appointments they otherwise would not be able to attend. Please note we need a minimum of 24 hours notice to organise a driver

We have drivers in Pukekohe, Port Waikato, Pokeno, Tuakau, Waiuku, Clarks Beach and Awhitu. They will pick you up from your home, wait for you while you attend your appointment and return you home.
