Projects We Run With Our Partners
Northfield Stronger Together: We chair this group of Third Sector providers in order to provide a sensitive response to individuals and groups. We organise transport to activities and ensure that social isolation amongst known service users is alleviated or minimised.
Our partnership with Midland Mencap continues to prove beneficial to young people with disabilities who we support through on-the-job training and our clients have reported their pleasure in getting help from the Mencap trainees.
Shencare has entered into partnership with KIDS, based in Bartley Green, to provide accessible transport for their children with disabilities. We have increased the wheelchair carrying capacity of our fleet.
We are the transport partner of Birmingham Settlement’s Centre for the Aston Family. As well as providing accessible transport, we also offer an advice service relating to the operation of these specialist vehicles. The beneficiaries of this partnership are young people and their families who come from mostly Asian backgrounds.
Day Centres and Luncheon Clubs: Records show that we have 525 people (not including their carers) registered as users of the service. In the last year these people have benefited from 31,200 journeys.
Partners, stakeholders and beneficiaries of the service play an integral role in the design of the service. Our work with Age Concern at Weoley Castle, Perry Barr and Kingstanding has led to plans to work in partnership so we may jointly offer a bespoke service to the people of North Birmingham.
