Need a lift?
People with a disability in the Brisbane and Ipswich areas can now enjoy a new supported passenger transport service.
PickUp Australia is a passenger transport service for people with disability, the elderly and anyone who requires assistance and support during travel. It’s staffed by qualified trained carer drivers who are able to provide additional support and assistance when required.
“We understand the needs of our clients, and provide an appropriate alternative to taxis and Uber to increase the choice of transport options for people with a disability,” founder Christine Mudavanhu said.
Customers need to book the service at least 24 hours in advance. PickUp Australia also operates an airport shuttle between Brisbane and Ipswich to Brisbane Airport.
Speak out loud
An innovative public speaking service staffed by people with disability has been launched by Adelaide’s Community Bridging Services (CBS).
Moonlight Speakers and Leaders provide public and motivational speakers, MCs for events, training and professional development, presentations, disability awareness and consumer participation activities. It currently represents six talented young people with lived experience of disability, all of whom aim to create positive change and value through honesty, integrity and humour.
Speakers will collaborate with the public by shining a light on creative thinking while focusing on the talents and positive contributions of difference. They also aim to bring the stigma of disability from out of the shadows of Australian society.
“Leaders are partially born and partially created and, as we provided expert training from international keynote speaker Vinh Giang, the skills, confidence and self-belief of our group of speakers grew quickly,” said CBS executive director and founder Freddie Brincat.
One of the founding speakers, Graeme, said he wanted to change public perception about people with disability and to encourage them “to understand our unique individuality and diversity”. Another member, James, said: “I have always tried to play the cards I have been dealt to the best of my ability.”
