Funding
 

Where does our funding come from?

We receive funding from Swindon Borough Council to support the Dial A Ride Bus and Shopperbus services we run in Swindon.  Other local authorities support the services we run outside the Borough of Swindon.

The income we receive from passenger fares and vehicle hire helps to pay the running costs of the vehicles.

We do not receive any statutory funding for the Dial A Ride Car, Access Car Hire and Community Transport Minibus Hire.

Funding to support the Day Trips has been received from local companies and trusts.

We need to replace at least one vehicle every year which costs between 32,000 and 42,000 each because they are specially adapted to the highest standards of safety, comfort and accessibility. Fundraising helps to pay for new vehicles.

How can you help?

  • Collections and donations from individuals or companies are always very welcome.
  • If you organise fundraising events, why not nominate us as your chosen charity?
  • If a loved one passes away perhaps you could consider us for donations in lieu of flowers at the funeral.
  • We collect unwanted clothing, bed linen, curtains, soft toys, curtains, and pairs of shoes.  These items are recycled to provide affordable clothing in less privileged countries.  Simply put these items in a plastic bag and drop them off at our office on Hawskworth Trading Estate.
  • We also collect stamps from the UK and abroad.
  • And finally, please remember us in your Will.
