We are Holdsworth Community.

Our purpose is to build a community where all people have the support and services they need in order to build their personal capacity; have a voice and make choices, and make meaningful social connections they need to live an active and happy life in the community.

We support groups of people who face barriers accessing the support they need to remain living independently at home and/or remain active participants in the community across the South-East and Central Suburbs of Sydney.

Can you help us raise $10,000 for an additional car for our transport services?

Community transport is an important part of tackling social isolation, maintaining well-being and enabling people to access health services. As the pandemic took hold, our services became a lifeline for even more people who were unable to leave their homes. We saw an increased need for our vital door-to-door transport services for hospital, medical, dental and allied health appointments to residents in the Woollahra LGA. This year alone, we have made over 11,000 trips!

To meet this increased demand, a new car will allow us to provide a further 2,000 essential trips for people who are unable to leave their home in our community.
