About ECT Charity


Our history

Our history image

ECT Charity started as Ealing Community Transport in 1979 whose mission was to provide transport for older and disabled people in Ealing. 

Over three decades later, the organisation has grown tremendously, but our headquarters remain at our depot in Greenford and we continue to provide a wide variety of services across the borough. In recent years, we replicated the success and community benefit to other regions in the UK including Ealing, Milton Keynes, Cheshire and Dorset and Cornwall.  Currently our umbrella brand ECT Charity now represents our four community transport companies:

Each of these companies offer a different range of services and you can find out more about the specific services available at each of our four locations here
