CarFreeMe® is an effective, evidence-based and client-centred approach to improve outcomes and support people to manage the decision to stop driving

Driving represents independence and freedom and can be vital for a social and active lifestyle. Older adults and people with health conditions may need to, or choose to, stop driving. This can have a negative impact on their quality of life and health.  The losses associated with no longer driving include difficulties with mood and adjustment, a decrease in participation in activities such as essential medical appointments, leisure interests and social engagements. This may put people at risk of isolation, depression and poor health outcomes.

Developed by a multi-disciplinary team from The University of Queensland, CarFreeMe® is a six-week program delivered by a trained CarFreeMe® provider who is a registered health professional and has completed the training.

CarFreeMe® helps participants to:

  • own their decision to stop driving
  • feel more in control of planning and to have a concrete plan to becoming car free
  • increase confidence and comfort while still going wherever they want to go.
