Phoenix Community Transport Mission Statement


To provide a Community Transport Service for such of the inhabitants of Caerphilly County Borough Council and its neighbourhood who are in need of such a service because of age, sickness, disability (mental or physical), poverty or because of lack of availability of adequate and safe public passenger services.



Needs
 

Many community groups rely on Phoenix Community Transport to carry their members to meetings and social events. Without Phoenix Community Transport many people would not be able to leave their homes.

The area in which Phoenix Community Transport works has a large proportion of older people, disabled and long term sick, socially excluded and those facing poverty in its many forms. Providing community transport can help address these problems, raising expectations and assisting regeneration in the County Borough.

Passengers and their families often send cards and letters in appreciation of the service they have received from Phoenix Community Transport and its staff.
