With over 12 years of community transport experience, the organisation continues to flourish and provide a diverse range of transport services wherever possible linking with existing bus and rail routes. 1 in 4 people in our catchment area are unable to drive or do not have access to a car. We endeavour to increase social inclusion and improve quality of life for our customers.
Less than 10% of our income is directly from grant aid, the rest of our turnover is generated income from transport contracts, group hire to local voluntary organisations, work for Arriva Trains Wales and the Heart of Wales Line Travellers Association, event recycling activities and recently the sales of glass cullet products.
It is essential we continue to increase our generated income over the next 5 years in order to become fully sustainable and self sufficient.

1) Providing a lifeline to rural communities
Due to the rural area we live in, numbers of people we help are always going to be low (approximately 50), but to those people, the services we offer act as a real lifeline.
We run shopper buses and days out to help people get out of the home. All our services are door to door with assistance where required! We even go as far as carrying the shopping into the house for people.
Our day centre is growing all the time. A place where people, young and old, come together and chat over a cuppa and share stories and advice.
2) Enabling community participation
Seeing people go from being housebound and lonely to enjoying and really looking forward to their trips out either on the shopper or to the day centre is great. They have said themselves they feel better in themselves for getting out and seeing other members of the community and to establish the concept of more community participation in services we provide.
