Clients from our Social Support Program participated in the Victorian Parliamentary Road Safety Inquiry in August.
The Inquiry, held by the Parliament’s Legislative Assembly Economy & Infrastructure Committee, provided an opportunity to understand more about how road safety behaviours have changed since COVID-19, and the impacts on vulnerable road users.
We supported four clients to share their valuable experiences and opinions about travelling in Merri-bek.
Anthony Cianflone, local MP said, “Thank you Merri Health for appearing – your older clients and local residents provided some very helpful feedback that will certainly help inform the committee’s work.”
Merri Health is committed to supporting older people to have a voice and help build a more age-friendly infrastructure environment.
