Voluntary Transport for the Disabled

A Community Service in Difficulty

Two years ago last December a vital Community Transport Service run by Lichfield District Council ceased due to national and local government austerity cuts. The council could not afford to run the service for the community or maintain its fleet of vehicles to the required standard for passenger transport. They are now at a stage where another local transport charity is in danger of closing down not due to any financial concerns at present but because of a lack of interest from the local community.
