Amber Community (formerly known as Road Trauma Services Victoria) www.ambercommunity.org.au
When RTSSV was first established in 1994, they were a small support network where people impacted by road trauma and their families could meet, talk, offer hope and support.
After 28 years, they are proud to be able to offer over 3,000 Victorians support services and provide education programs to over 5,000 Victorians. In order for them to grow and expand their support services and programs, they are moving forward with a new look and feel that better reflects who they are today.
They may look and sound a little different, but are the same team of passionate and dedicated volunteers and staff with the same vision – and that is to reduce the incidence and impact of road trauma.
