Our collection of stories – the “Journey Makers” series – shines a light on the people who are making journeys possible for passengers every day. We hear from drivers, volunteers, carers, staff and organisers, all of whom provide that extra care which sets community transport apart.
The tagline beneath our logo, “Making journeys possible” embodies these journey makers and the social value that we create every day. We do this by enabling people who struggle to access mainstream transport to lead active and independent lives. We focus on helping people who fall between the gaps of statutory transport provision, those who are isolated in rural areas, and those who are lonely because they struggle to leave their homes using conventional transport.
In doing so, we provide lonely and isolated people with a crucial lifeline – whether this involves a simple trip to the shops, a check-up at the local GP or a day out with a group of friends.
