Active Care Network provides transport for eligible disadvantaged people (the frail aged, people with disabilities and their carers) living in the Blue Mountains and Penrith local government areas.
Mountains Community Transport was funded through the Home and Community Care Program (HACC) in 1986 to provide transport assistance for the frail aged, people with disabilities and their carers who lived in the Blue Mountains LGA. A year later Nepean Community Transport was funded to service the same people in the Penrith LGA. On 1 July 2004 the two services were amalgamated to become GREAT Community Transport Inc. The service has since expanded and now provides assistance with shopping, medical and hospital transports, transport to centre based meals and social outings, all provided by paid and volunteer workers.
We have a dedicated paid staff consisting of a manager, co-ordinator for each location, administration workers and driver/carers.
Active Care Network aims to be an employer of choice for the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Blacktownregions. We abide by equal opportunity employment principles and provide uniforms, ongoing training and mentoring. We foster a great team environment, where paid and volunteer staff work harmoniously and are valued.

We are governed by a highly qualified and varied volunteer board. If you would like to join the board, please contact The Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org
