Our History

Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) was founded in 1994 by a small group of people whose lives had been directly impacted by road trauma. These people understood the need for a specialist service where support could be offered to those who, like them, were suffering because of the injury or loss of a loved one on the roads. They joined with professionals working in the area to provide counselling and support.

From this humble beginning in 1994, RTSSV has grown to offer state-wide counselling, support and education services to any Victorian affected by a road incident.

RTSSV now comprises a team of staff and volunteers who provide support and education services to more than 7,000 people annually.

In 2015 RTSSV celebrated its 21st birthday and produced a booklet called 21 years.
