Seaford Town Council has announced its 2015 grant programme which includes support for CTLA’s community transport service in Seaford. As part of its community support commitment, £5000 was awarded to the Haven’s only community transport operator of its kind, to help the charity continue in its mission to meet the needs that conventional public transport operators leave unmet. Combating isolation and loneliness are two of the aims of CTLA whilst improving social health and well-being with accessible transport options. CTLA gives confidence and independence to some of the most vulnerable members in our community.
CTLA General Manager, Derek Barnett, said; “The grant from Seaford Town Council is very much appreciated. It will enable us to offer our very popular 4 Towns Community Bus Services to Seaford residents on those days that the East Sussex County Council supported Seaford Dial-A-Ride service does not operate. The 4 Towns Service already benefits from grant funding from Telscombe, Peacehaven and Newhaven Town Councils. The grant from Seaford Town Council will therefore help future sustainability for the service and shows how well local Councils can work together and co-operate to provide vital services for their communities and residents.”
