To purchase an additional fully accessible MPV to enable us to provide transport for more elderly & disabled individuals. This service provides a door-to-door service for elderly and disabled people and helps them to access services and remain independent in the community
Charity information: Worcester Volunteer Centre
Lack of access to services withing the community for elderly and disabled residents
By providing them with a door to door service using an accessible vehicle
To raise sufficient funds to enable us to purchase a new MPV
Activities» Apply for funding, raise funds ourselves, accept donations
What success will look like
Success will be when we have the new vehicle operating in the city and surrounding rural areas
Older people and people with disabilities will be able to remain living independently in the community because they will be able to access the services they need
The principal risk is in not receiving all the funding we need to purchase the vehicle.
Once we have the vehicle, the main risk is ensuring we have sufficient funds to maintain and service it - we know we can do this through the fares and grants we already receive
We'd be more than happy for donors to visit us and see the vehicle in operation.
We'd also send regular written reports, copies of service evaluations and feedback from clients
