ECT_Why_community_transport_matters_Final_version3“We at ECT Charity know that an investment in community transport means savings elsewhere. For example, taking an elderly lady on a weekly shopping trip not only saves a carer having to do this for her, but also boosts her wellbeing by getting her out and about. Ensuring that an 80-year old
man with diabetes gets to his regular check-ups means that he remains healthy and independent, reducing the chances of an emergency trip to hospital followed by weeks of after-care.

Anecdotal evidence is powerful, but putting real figures behind these stories is important, especially when we are trying to convince councils, commissioners and government policymakers that community transport is a worthwhile investment.”

Anna Whitty, Chief Executive, ECT Charity
