Community minibus appeal

Our door-to-door community transport is a lifeline for many. It enables local people who cannot drive or may not be confident about leaving their home alone to easily access Guild Care’s help. This means fewer people are isolated and can attend our variety of services, including dementia day care, or even enjoy trips out as part of our children or adult support programmes.

Last year our minibuses undertook almost 25,000 journeys around Worthing and the surrounding areas, collecting and dropping passengers home. But, with this level of usage comes high mileage and wear and tear. At about ten years of age, they become expensive to run and can spend more time in the garage than helping local people.

This is why we are asking you to help fund a new minibus within this 85th Anniversary year. It will be a minibus for your local community, funded by people like you.

“Guild Care’s community transport makes all the difference to me. Without this service I would have to pay for a taxi to bring me to their day centre in Worthing. The only other alternative would be the bus but, because I am losing my sight, I struggle to walk to the bus stop and need help with steps. It’s quite frightening to go out alone.”

Doreen Cannon, Broadwater

Each minibus costs £55,000 to purchase and adapt for the needs of disabled passengers. We need your help to raise these funds to ensure people like Doreen can continue to get the help she needs. Please donate today by clicking here
