KNC – Gal­ston work from the Com­mu­nity Health Cen­tre and are part of the Ku-ring-gai Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre based in St Ives. We have a won­der­ful team of vol­un­teer driv­ers that help our aged com­mu­nity get to their hospi­tal and med­i­cal ap­point­ments, drive them to the shops and help them with trans­port to other es­sen­tial ap­point­ments.

New clients need to live in­de­pen­dently and be over 65, be un­able to use reg­u­lar trans­port and they need to be reg­is­tered with My Aged Care. Our vol­un­teers give their time freely, and we ask a con­tri­bu­tion is made to help cover their ve­hi­cle costs.
