Our founder created Community Transport in 1964 with a small band of volunteers who were passionate about their local community and eager to try and support, and what an impact they had!
Fast forward 50 years as we continue to be an integral part of numerous communities through the west midlands and north east, with our team of over 150 employees and volunteers. Our founders’ passion remains true as we continue to provide affordable furniture and household goods, accessible transport and are continuously up-skilling the community with training.
The service we provide is invaluable to so many people in our community and we need your help to continue to provide it.
