Through its Transport Services, ECHO Community Service can take clients to:
- medical and specialists appointments
- shopping either personalised one on one or shopping bus
- social appointments
- group outings
Our trained volunteers offer a personal service and will escort the client into and out of appointments. We currently have 3 shopping bus services per week to nearby shopping malls. The volunteers will assist clients to take their shopping inside when they arrive home. One on one shopping services are usually carried out by a support worker.
If you need a transport booking:
- Please make the request with at least 2 days notice before the journey.
- It is helpful to give 1 week’s notice when it is around the date of a public holiday
Transport can be arranged on occasions as a same day or emergency service if a vehicle is available. We will try our best to help.
Eligibility for Home and Community Care Services in WA is determined by the Regional Assessment Service (RAS). Home Care Package Holders can opt for this service as part of the package. Please see “Navigating the Home Care Maze” for further information.
