The South Australian Community Transport Association (sacta) was incorporated on 4th September 2013, after a need for a peak body for Community Transport Providers across the state was identified.
Currently, two members of sacta (Craig Frost and Julie Mason) are also Board Members on the Australian Community Transport Association (ACTA) committee, who have been very supportive of our work towards establishing a South Australian peak body.
sacta currently has over 50 members including Local Governments, Community Passenger Networks, other transport providers (e.g. Leukaemia Foundation, Anglicare, Helping Hand) and various associate memberships (e.g. COTA, RAA, Seniors Information Service) and are now offering memberships to transport providers in the Northern Territory.
Our website has been designed as our main tool to help support members. The ‘members only’ login pages includes:
- latest industry news
- access to latest research and grants
- links to innovative programs and projects
- conference information (both past and future)
- useful fact sheets
- links to national and overseas community transport organisations
We have the support of the Local Government Association, Local Government Community Managers Network, Department for Communities and Social Inclusion, Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and BusSA.
We look forward to building our networks and collaborative partnerships with all relevant organisations and services in an effort to keep Community Transport front of mind with our partners, for the benefit of our members, and most importantly, for those in need of assistance with transport.
If you are not yet a member, we would welcome your participation and support for this newly established peak body, as we aim to be truly representative of all Community Transport providers in the Community Transport sector in South Australia and Northern Territory.
In brief, we see the role of sacta is to:
- provide a united voice for SA & NT community transport providers at a national level (through membership with the Australian Community Transport Association)
- promote best practice and innovative community transport options
- source new projects, studies and research to share with members
- provide a forum for information sharing and networking
