Community transport is a valuable asset to your community because it allows the most vulnerable to get out and about and stay in touch with friends and family or to get to appointments such as GP's or dentist. Sedcat provides the opportunities for inclusivity which others take for granted.Our impact on the community
1100 members and around 500 disabled visitors to Bournemouth each year use Sedcat services and equipment. Using equipment, visitors can shop and enjoy the sights. Shopping and socialising are important to maintaining independence and staying in your own home for longer. Community Transport lessens the carbon footprint of the local environment and responds to gaps or cuts in local services which prevent communities from becoming isolated.
