Lewes Town Council considers that CTLA provides essential services to the community of Lewes, and has been very happy to give a significant financial grant to support these services since 2014.
The Council is currently working with CTLA to establish what new services might be provided, such as an individual dial-a-ride scheme to replace that recently closed-down by the Red Cross organization.
The Council has a high regard for the working values of CTLA and their commitment to the local community and looks forward to the continuing development of our relationship with them.
“Many of us take getting public transport for granted but getting from point A to B can be difficult for those who have difficulty getting to the bus stop, need a little bit of extra assistance on the journey or do not live near a regular or reliable bus route. CTLA provide an invaluable service especially to the elderly and those living with a disability. I commend their work and will always fight for their interests as a local Member of Parliament.”
CTLA provide an invaluable service to vulnerable members of our community, enabling them to access events, health appointments, groups and activities, within and outside Newhaven.
Many service users would remain isolated, alone and unable to get to many supportive community activities they enjoy, without transport support from CTLA.
The staff and volunteers give a safe, friendly and familiar service to people, young and old.
Mollie currently attends the Life Skills Centre at Chailey Heritage Foundation and has enjoyed a crucial, comfortable and caring service from CTLA for 12 years, which has enabled her to access education and social activities, instrumental in her ongoing development and making her the wonderful young lady she is today.
Prior to CTLA’s involvement, we had the stress of not knowing how and who would be taking Mollie to school at the start of every academic year. The positive relationship we built up with the drivers and passenger assistants, and the ongoing support and understanding of the office staff, greatly reduced any concerns we had in handing over her daily transport needs.
The charity has been incredibly flexible in times of Mollie’s frequent, unpredictable and unstable health episodes, since she was nine years old. CTLA have gone beyond the call of duty when Mollie has had to attend hospital, other medical appointments and visits.
We cannot thank CTLA enough & recommend them without hesitation.”
CTLA Community Transport provides home to school transport for many young people with complex health needs and physical disabilities.
The parent of a young person with additional needs explains here how having continuous service from CTLA for their daughter, Mollie, has impacted positively on all their lives.
CTLA has, and continues to, assist infinite numbers of vulnerable and isolated members of the community across my constituency, and their excellent work has seen the services that they provide ever more in demand.
