Telford Community Transport ceased trading on 26th April 2013.
The community transport service was launched in this form in 2000 and has since provided transport for hundreds of pensioners and vulnerable people across the borough. All of the scheme’s minibuses were wheelchair accessible and easily accessible for people who struggled with steps.
“We receive no support, funding or subsidies of any kind and can no longer afford to subsidise the service ourselves”.
Royal Voluntary Service volunteers may help with:
- mobility services so older people can still get out and about in their community. Tel: 01743 240271.
- undertake some 90,000 journeys on behalf of older people. These may be trips to and from hospital or to a GP appointment. Equally, these may be trips to the shops or into town journeys that enrich lives and really add to the pleasure of day-to-day living. Re Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. Tel: 01743 240271.
- Visits to hospital and the GP surgery can be stressful so the help and support of a Royal Voluntary Service volunteer often proves invaluable. Our volunteers accompany older people, arrange care for pets and are there in the first few weeks following a hospital visits. Royal Voluntary Service volunteers will also collect prescriptions and help cook meals.
