20 Dec Department for Transport's Community Transport Minibus Fund
Shencare is delighted to announce that we have been successful in our application to the Department for Transport’s Community Transport Minibus Fund.
The Government has set aside £24 million to provide Community Transport operators with a new minibus in Round one of this funding. A stringent application process has been held to ensure that the fund will benefit the local community that we serve. The RT. HON. Patrick McLoughlin, Secretary of State for Transport said ” These providers lie at the heart of the communities that they serve – getting people to hospitals, towns and shops and supporting groups like Guides and Scouts. They are particularly important in rural and isolated areas, helping people to get around and participate in local life.”
We have taken delivery of our new wheelchair accessible Mercedes Sprinter that has been fully adapted for our clients needs. Initial reaction from our service users and drivers has been extremely positive.
