Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV). Our volunteers are the face behind the road trauma statistics that we hear so often reported in the news. Each of our volunteers has a unique story and perspective on road safety. By drawing on their experiences, our volunteers help us to make better decisions when we get behind the wheel so that we may reach our destinations safely.
Volunteering roles include:
- Volunteer speakers – sharing accounts of road trauma, and the effects of road trauma on our community to education programs, community and school groups
- Fundraising activities – organising local community fundraising events, opening doors to corporate sponsors
- General office administration support
- Support groups
- Peer-to-peer support
Help inspire people to be safer on our roads.
People who have been personally impacted by road trauma play a critical role in raising awareness.
Help promote road safety in your local community.
• Have you been involved in a serious road incident?
• Are you looking to share your story with others in the hope that one less family is impacted by road trauma?
RTSSV delivers local education programs that address the attitudes and behaviours of road users. Volunteers share their personal stories to get the road safety message out into the community and ultimately save lives!
If you have been:
• injured or had a family member/friend injured or die
• first on the scene at a serious road incident
• a witness to a road incident
• a driver involved in a serious road incident
• an emergency service worker attending a road incident
…we would like to speak to you.
95 per cent of our participants commit to changing the way they approach driving, and our volunteer’s stories play a huge part in that.
“Lifesaving for sure. It has improved my sense of self-worth after our family’s tragic event. It helped me rebuild and re-energised my life to give it meaning and purpose. It has given me opportunities to connect and develop meaningful relationships with likeminded people.”
