Our vision, mission and strategic priorities

We are for, and about, accessible and inclusive transport

Our vision is of a world where people can shape and create their own accessible and inclusive transport solutions.

Our mission is to realise our vision through three strategic priorities:

Strategic Priority 1: Championing accessible and inclusive transport

We will be the UK’s number one authority on making transport more accessible and inclusive for the benefit of the communities served by our members.

1.1  We will contribute to the formation of public policy where community-led transport solutions can improve access and inclusion.

1.2  We will gather and share data from our network which enables policy-makers and the public to understand and value community transport.

1.3  We will consult and involve our members and other stakeholders in the development of policy initiatives.

Strategic Priority 2: Connecting people and ideas

We will be recognised as the UK’s main hub for the creation and exchange of knowledge, ideas and innovation on improving the accessibility and inclusivity of transport.

2.1  We will show how better outcomes are achieved for people and communities when they have accessible and inclusive transport.

2.2  We will create opportunities for our members and supporters to come together, exchange ideas and be inspired.

2.3  We will create partnerships with like-minded organisations across all sectors who share our vision and values.

Strategic Priority 3: Strengthening our members and raising standards

We work with our members to promote high standards of practice in community transport and support them to deliver excellent services.

3.1  We will be the custodians of sector-led performance standards for community transport and support operators to work to these.

3.2  We will manage a national programme of quality assured education and training to enhance driving standards and the safe operation of community transport vehicles. 

3.3  We run programmes that support our members to benefit from new opportunities and meet emerging needs.

Our Values:

We put members first.

We lead with authority and responsibility.

We prioritise mobility and accessibility.

We champion volunteering.

We think big.
