“We have considered in detail how best to ensure that we are able to meet service demand currently and the projected increase in demand for community transport. Thanks to Gloucester Community Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund, and The Summerfield Charitable Trust, we are able to take the project forward.

We are really grateful to these funders for recognising the importance of what our volunteers provide for those in need within their communities and look forward to building on this excellent provision. Champions will be supported to develop our services, locally engaging with funders and policy makers, as well as recruiting drivers and raising awareness amongst those in need locally.”
