Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) in conjunction with Victoria Police have recently launched their 'Support at the Time of Need Project'.
The project whch is funded by the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust and Victoria Police, will see witnesses and families affected by car crashes receive on-the-spot information about the impact of road trauma.
Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) is fortunate to be the recipient of the proceeds from the Alpine Challenge to be held on 19-21 March 2011.
Taking in some of Victoria's best high country, with over 7,000 meters of ascent and descent, this run is the classic 100 mile mountain challenge and will test participants to the limit as it traverses some of the hardest and most exposed areas of the Australian Alps.
In 2007 representatives of Road Trauma Support Services met with the Hon Tim Holding, Minister for Transport Accident Commission, to discuss the need for a permanent memorial site/concept in recognition of the loss of life and injury on Victorian roads. As a result, initial funding from TAC has been provided to further this aim. A Steering Committee, including Jeanette Suhr OAM, has been established, and a series of community consultations has commenced.
