In an effort to assist in the cost of emergency accommodation and transport for loved ones of emergency patients, Rural Aid is developing a list of property owners who would love to offer up a room at their home to help accommodate these wonderful people in their time of need or transport them to and from hospitals / airports. In addition Rural Aid is fundraising to provide coverage for small out of pocket expenses such as transport and accommodation if not able to be found or subsidised through government assistance.
Australians passionate about rural Australia will understand the costs and remoteness from family that affects families when such situations arise. Through links with organisations like The Royal Flying Doctors and Careflight, Angel Flight, Councils, health providers and others, we hope to develop a list of enough rooms and drivers that we can alleviate these cost burdens.
If you have a property and or a room or rooms and would happily offer accommodation at short notice to a family in need or would like to offer your driving skills to ferry people around please complete the registration form below and one of our team will be in contact.
We need to cover all major and regional cities.
