In Victoria last year we had 249 people die on our roads and around 6,000 were seriously injured.

RTSSV is a not-for-profit organisation contributing to the safety and wellbeing of road users.

We provide counselling and support to people impacted by road trauma, and address the attitudes and behaviours of road users through education.

Counselling services are provided free of charge to anyone who has been impacted by a road incident

We are committed to educating the community and raising public awareness about road trauma and how it affects people’s lives.  RTSSV does this by positively influencing driver attitudes and behaviours with the aim of reducing crashes and the resulting trauma.

For more information or if you would like to make an appointment with one of our counsellors, please contact reception on 1300 367 797.



Road Trauma Support Services offers free face-to-face or telephone counselling to any person affected by a road incident



A big part of reducing the impact of road trauma is stopping it from happening in the first place - addressing attitudes and behaviours through education
