Transport to Health in Aneurin Bevan Grant Fund

The Transport to Health project has been set up to support community transport across the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area (Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport, South Powys and Torfaen).

TVA is pleased to be a Project Partner with Transport to Health. Working alongside colleagues at ABUHB, the Community Transport Association, GAVO, TVA and Bridges Centre, we are offering our Team’s support and expertise to help new or existing Community Transport enterprises in Torfaen to access this grant.

Grant funding is available to any not-for-profit transport service to develop accessible and inclusive transport to health settings for Patients, Visitors or Staff living within the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area. It can be used to support the development of new schemes, take existing services to the next level or to encourage new partnerships within the community transport sector.

It has been identified that there are areas where public transport provision is fragmented. This can mean long travel times to get to major health settings which is inconvenient at best, but presents real barriers to residents with additional support needs, low incomes or who live in an isolated location. There has been recognition that community transport could be hugely beneficial in helping these residents access health settings for appointments or to visit loved ones.
