ECT has launched the ECT Transport Fund to help support organisations in Ealing create social opportunities for isolated individuals through local accessible community transport options. The Fund will give local community groups the opportunity to bid for transportation funding that will stimulate new or additional community activities.
ECT has been providing community transport services in Ealing since 1979. ECT’s community-based door-to-door services help keep disabled, isolated and lonely people independent and mobile. As part of our commitment to deliver a public benefit, ECT constantly seeks innovative ways to work with local partners to provide local communities with safe, affordable and accessible transport that responds to their needs.
The ECT Transport Fund will provide successful applicants with a credit of up to £1,000 to offset the cost of transport provided by ECT (which includes a driver if you need one, vehicle hire and fuel costs). To be eligible to apply, applicants must be a community and/or voluntary group which provides community-based activities.
