Top 3 Questions about our Community Car Wash

Since its launch, Toowoomba community members have brought their cars to our Toowoomba Hub to be washed by our excited Participants.  Eager to be a productive part of the community, our Participants gain a sense of achievement and financial independence by being able to earn a fair wage and manage their own money from working in the Community Car Wash. 

Organising the car wash is a passion project for Community Access Care founder Julie McCracken. Her dedication to inclusivity advocacy and helping Participants develop life skills and engage in paid work opportunities in a safe and enjoyable environment is the reason behind Community Access Care’s inception after all.

Community Access Care Services

The Community Car wash aligns with our Social and Community Participation service and has been a huge success in providing a fun, safe community engagement opportunity for our Participants.

Our support service is focused on removing the stigma of people living with disabilities to bridge the gap in community interactions. The car wash may seem like a small task, but it is a huge step toward our Participants’ goal of living more independently.

1. Can I drive my car in without booking?
