WD Community Transport
The group was set up with a common interest in developing Community Transport in WD particularly to reduce social isolation by working with community groups and improve health outcomes by helping people to health appointments. Members have a range of backgrounds from community activities to public transport operations. Pre-COVID we met face to face monthly but during COVID we have had regular Zoom conferences. Meetings revolve around developing the strategy to grow the group, attract funding. After a pilot scheme with a partner organisation in Clydebank (Q1 of 2022), WDCT now operate a bespoke Health Appointment Transport Scheme for residents of West Dunbartonshire.
