Our Story

Our History

Linked Community Services’ mission is to deliver quality services that link people to the community to promote independence and inclusion. And for almost 40 years’, Linked Community Services has been achieving this mission.

The Linked Community Services that exists today is an amalgamation of two community transport organisations, Hastings Macleay Community Transport (established January 1986) and Community Transport Port Stephens (established May 1984).

Both organisations have evolved and developed from humble beginnings, starting out with a very small group of volunteers using older vehicles providing public transport for disadvantaged people within each region. Today, Linked Community Services comprises a Board of Directors, over 30 employees, over 60 volunteers and almost 40 fleet vehicles, with plans for an extended range of community services beyond transport.

At Linked Community Services, remaining dynamic to our client’s needs into the future ensures that we can continue to help them live as independently as possible. As their needs change, our services will too. The one thing that won’t change is our focus on providing safe, reliable and most importantly, friendly service to our clients.
