Transport for the Disabled, Scotland, British Association

Since 1987, the project Dial a Journey has been providing and maintaining a vital service to those with mobility difficulties living in Central Scotland, particularly the elderly, as well as children and adults with disabilities. The door-to-door service is the core of their work, and allows those who are unable to use public transport the independence to travel in comfort and safety in one of the specially adapted minibuses.
In the year 2014-15, 20,370 journeys were provided using the door-to-door service, and 23,180 journeys to and from school for children with mobility difficulties. Following a first grant awarded for St John’s Day 2015, this grant will cover part of the third and final purchase of a new minibus in order to ensure that the service can continue for the beneficiaries who rely heavily on Dial a Journey to maintain their independent lives.
