Client Responsibilities

Transport service users also have some responsibilities to the people providing care to them. Graham House Community Transport asks their clients to:

  • Treat staff and volunteers with respect and courtesy
  • Provide a safe workplace for staff and volunteers, help then to provide the client with services safely, and inform them if there are any potential hazards

Confidentiality

All matters are handled in the strictest confidence.

Complaints

If you have a complaint about any aspect of our service, please contact us as soon as possible.

There will be no consequences except an improved service. The problem can’t be fixed unless we know about it.

Advocacy

An advocate is someone you can elect to act on your behalf. This can be a family member, friend or someone else.

You can obtain information about an advocate by calling the Queensland Aged and Disability Advocacy Service on 1800 818 338.
