    To transport community groups to various locations giving members the opportunity for social inclusion. This will be done by the provision of fully accesible minibuses driven by Volunteer Drivers. DACT’s aim is to reduce isolation of individuals in rural areas, both young, old and those with reduced mobility. To increase the activities of groups and enhance social life in local areas which will build community relations, and increase use of rural infrastructure and business.

DACT will offer solutions for those with mobility impairment to enable them to improve their quality and standard of living.
