EAST VALE COMMUNITY TRANSPORT

EVCT is a small charity, based in Penarth, providing accessible minibus transport for the community of the eastern Vale, both groups and individuals.  Since 1986, thanks to volunteer drivers, our door-to-door service has taken people shopping, to meetings, on expeditions and visits when they might otherwise be unable to get out.  Most journeys are local but we have gone as far afield as London and Tenby.  

 

Any group or individual with a need is welcome to join as a member and use the service.  We have a small pool of volunteer drivers but always welcome those who can provide their own driver, who would obviously need to meet legal requirements and undertake a training session.

 

We raise funds to run and maintain two wheelchair-friendly minibuses.  Anyone with a wheelchair, subject to weight restrictions on the tail lift, can be accommodated on the buses.  

 

We have office space at Penarth Methodist Church, and we employ a part-time Co-ordinator to make bookings and oversee our administrative duties and  responsibilities. A group of trustees manage the charity on a voluntary basis and always welcome help with fundraising and recruitment.

 

We currently aim to enhance EVCT service by recruiting and training Passenger Assistants to travel with groups as necessary.

 

If you want to use our service or to volunteer as a driver, passenger assistant, trustee or fundraiser, please contact eastvalect@aol.com. You can find forms to apply for membership or to volunteer as a driver on this website.
