Message from the Founder & CEO
Welcome to the Trans-Help Foundation's website, this is the only national charity that supports transport personnel and their families. We thank you for taking the time to stop by and browse our site. If you can not find what you are seeking, please don't hesitate to contact us. To get a full understanding please take five minutes to look at Behind the Scenes.
Established in 2005, the Foundation has supported over 10,000 transport families through our 24/7 national 1300 support line; mobile health & support units which traverse transport corridors providing preventative health checks/general support; and our national respite facility. We also have support network across the country to assist those in need of critical incident response.
Our services are diverse, from assisting widows, families and workmates following accidents to supporting drivers suffering road trauma or other issues which can affect their ability to drive. Our work has proven to save lives, make our roads healthier and in turn saving company’s time, money and reduce the possibility of accidents/incidents.
The foundation’s goal is that all transport personnel are aware of our service and know about us without ever needing us, rather than one day needing us and not know about us.
BP Australia renews Sponsorship
BP Australia is now in their second year as a major sponsor of the Foundation. In recent months the launch of BP's Driver+ App has included the foundations traffic alerts and also health tips.
Without the support and sponsorship of BP the foundation would not be able to reach as many places as it can now. This has increased our support within the industry as well as providing more services to more areas.
BP also had Trans-Help attend the Global Truck & Trailer Leaders Summit in Melbourne where CEO, Dianne Carroll gave international leaders an overview of the Trans-Help Foundation. BP also invited Trans-Help to partner them at the NatRoad Conference in Adelaide.
"The partnership with BP Australia has been so rewarding for Trans-Help and it continually grows. It is bringing more benefits to the transport industry nationally, making it healthier and safer, something BP and Trans-Help are committed to" said Di Carroll, CEO.
