Tweed River Valley Fellowship (TRVF)
Our brand and organisation had its roots in a small welfare action group that branched into a community based service managed by a committee of consumers, carers, local government and community minded citizens. TRVF’s service offerings – including the provision of housing, outreach and rehabilitation options for people living with a mental health illness – are still core to our business, yet we have expanded both our reach and the areas we support.

By 2004, we were ready for a name change and a fresh approach and became On Track Community Programs Inc and in 2010 On Track Community Programs Ltd. It was during these years we saw rapid expansion of our client-base and became motivated by community engagement strategies – proactively influencing and educating politicians, senior bureaucrats, media and the community on the range of issues faced by people who are disadvantaged by disability, mental illness, unemployment and homelessness.
2007: Expanded the Mental Health Programs to Coffs & Lismore
2009: Expansion of HASI, DHASI & ADE Programs
2010: Additional Community Housing Service and Homelessness Programs
2013: Mental Health Respite Carers Support Project
our motto was “Connecting people to their Communities”, demonstrating our early understanding of the importance of community inclusion for our more vulnerable. We expanded our footprint to include southern Queensland and extended our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
