Our Better Together online community forum was set up in 2018 to help Ambulance Victoria connect with our community, listen to your needs and expectations and to encourage people to participate and help save lives in an emergency.

Put simply, community feedback can help us improve our services for you and your community, and in turn, your participation in an emergency may help save someone’s life.

This is a pilot site that will help us assess whether community members find this a useful way to provide input and join the conversation. This online forum will be reviewed at the end of the year along with all of your feedback to help us shape the next phase of our community engagement.
