Community Assisted Transport Scheme (CATS)
The car has arrived and the drivers are ready to go! Following successful application to the Bain Estate, Helen Gooding and Bob Bray, in conjunction with the shire, have been working to get the CATS to the point of being ready to operate. The scheme pairs volunteer drivers with a client to ensure that services outside of our area can be accessed. All it costs the client is a $50 fee in addition to their PATS reimbursement which goes to ensuring the scheme remains viable in the future.

The service is available to ALL residents of the shire;
- For journeys to specialist medical appointments; or
- Allied health appointments where the service is not available locally; or
- For compassionate reasons;
- Clients under the age of 18 shall be required to have a guardian accompany them on the journey.

- Hold a current ‘C’ class driver’s licence;
- Register as a shire volunteer;
- Sign a confidentiality agreement;

SEE Something? WANT Something? SAY Something..
We rely on residents of the shire reporting faults to us, as we don’t have the resources to ensure that every road, building, park and garden in the shire is free from defects. If you see something, please report it keeping in mind the following:
1. Reports are to be made via the shire website,www.dumbleyung.wa.gov.au. If you don’t have access to a computer, or prefer not to, you can make a report via the front counter of the shire, either in-person, by telephone, or email@example.com.
2. Reports are not to be made to the Manager of Works, staff not working the front counter or any staff member in their private time. We are trying to ensure every works request receives the appropriate response, but if you choose to go outside the process, we may not provide a response.
3. Works requests simply need to report what and where the fault is. If you have further helpful information please include it, but we do not require a story behind the fault. From the report, we can determine the correct treatment and if we require further information, we will get back in touch.
Following your report, we will respond to acknowledge receipt of the report as soon as it is received, and then let you know what action we plan to take within ten days. If applicable, we will then let you know when the work has been carried out.
