Carers Victoria's submission to the Multi Purpose Taxi Program Review

Carers Victoria provides this feedback on behalf of carers and the people they care for living in Victoria.

Accessible and affordable transport is of crucial importance to supporting and sustaining informal care of people living in the community. The current Multi Purpose Taxi Program (MPTP) provides much needed support not only to Victorians with limited mobility, but to their family and friend carers. Carers are both providers and key facilitators of transport services for the people they care for, and indirect beneficiaries of the program as they travel with a person with limited mobility to support them with access to medical appointments and other necessary travel.

Carers Victoria acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and pays respect to elders both past and present.
