Why does Polaris partner with Amber Community

We know that being involved in a crash may be very distressing, and many people feel overwhelmed by everything that is happening.

We guide our clients through their legal journey following a road trauma, but we know that is only once piece of the puzzle.

We find that people have a better experience and achieve the best possible outcome if they get appropriate legal, medical, and psychological support promptly. It makes perfect sense to partner with an organisation like Amber Community who are committed to minimising the psychological hardship caused by road trauma.

What does the partnership involve?

We support Amber Community by providing general advice about legal issues that affect people impacted by road trauma and by giving $15,000 towards counselling, support and advocacy services.

The partnership helps Amber Community continue to provide vital services, including free counselling, information and support for every Victorian impacted by road trauma.
