About ECT Charity


What we do

What we do image

ECT Charity provides safe, accessible and affordable community transport to people unable to use mainstream transport due to mobility or other difficulties, or because ordinary public transport is unavailable in their area.

These individuals use our service for a wide variety of reasons, such as going shopping, visiting friends, and going on our organised day-trips to local attractions. Our service is often the only way in which vulnerable and socially isolated people, and those with disabilities, are able to get out and about. In this way, our charitable activities create social value by enabling people to remain independent, participate in their communities and access vital public services.

In addition to providing door-to-door transport to individuals, we offer an accessible minibus service to local community organisations, such as charities and voluntary groups. Currently, ECT Charity provides its community transport services in Cheshire, Cornwall, Dorset and Ealing (London).

We have also provided accessible community transport solutions to one-off events such as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as Prince Harry’s Invictus Games 2014, and the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships
