We seek the support of the community so that we can provide services to the community. Much of what we achieve is supported by people by donating their time, donating money, donating unwanting gifts, or their expertise. Without this support our job would be impossible to achieve. Year on year with the help that we get from our donors and supporters we are providing transportation to more people within the community. We thank you for your support.
There are many ways you can continue to help us, and we always welcome new supporters. Below are introductions to different ways of supporting us ranging from donating funds to providing your time.
The Chilterns Dial-a-Ride is a Registered Charity (Charity Number 1161606). We aim to cover our operations and capital costs through the revenues that we raise through the provision of our services and from grants from local authorities and other bodies. Often this is not enough, so we also seek support from the public in order to help us to maintain and improve our service.
Currently we support over 350 individuals a year, helping them to get to hospitals and other medical appointments. We also provide days out for groups and individuals to help those that have restricted access to transport to get away for the day, often with their carers.
There are many ways you can help us by donating funds or unwanted goods to our organisation. We can also recover gift aid based on financial donations. You could also make a bequest in a will to the benefit of The Chilterns Dial-a-Ride. To learn more about the ways in which you can help us please follow the fundraising link below.
