Your donation helps us take access and inclusion further.

For more than 100 years we’ve assisted people on their public transport journeys, providing mobility equipment, connection services, personal care and a friendly place to rest. Today, our drive to find new ways to make life that little bit easier is as strong as ever.

Our services now extend beyond Melbourne to Seymour and Ballarat. We provide support at Melbourne’s major events so more people can participate comfortably and on their terms. We are also now sharing our expertise through a range of disability awareness training programs.

While many of our services are free and simple to use, they make a big difference to the lives of the people we support. Our impact is clear through our valued practical services and the independence and dignity they bring.
Your generosity means we can reach more people in more places

Please give to our Winter Appeal and help spread our impact further.

Travellers Aid was a safe haven, with the most caring and helpful people keen to do what they could for me and the many, many people, in varied economic (some dire) circumstances I observed in my time there. Your Kindnesses touched me and I commend your Humanity. Thank You” – from a valued client
