What is it?

Who can apply?

Anyone who plans to attend Rendez-vous can apply. Please note that the aim of the Travel Pool is to help those who otherwise would not be able to attend. Before you apply, consider the following questions:

  • Have you done everything you can to raise funds on your own?
  • Do you and your family have a financial need?
  • Are there others who need support more than you do?

What are special circumstances?

  • We recognize that regional councils cover huge areas. If you are coming from a regional or remote area, you may need to travel just to travel. Or, if you have accessibility requirements, you may need to make special arrangements that are more expensive.
  • Let us know if you have any special circumstances and we will do our best to take them into account.
