3 easy steps to Tourist Membership

  • Contact the Client Coordinator to check eligibility and arrange a meeting time. Call (08) 8331 2399 or email us.
  • The Tourist and a family member/carer attend the meeting to discuss the Tourist’s interests and support needs. This information ensures support staff can maintain the Tourist’s safety, well being and happiness while on holiday.
  • During the meeting we explain the Conditions of Travel (including confidentiality and privacy requirements), complete all Membership and Carer forms and provide more information about the service.
