West Norfolk Community Transport Project

Better Access to Transport (BAT)

The West Norfolk Community Transport Project's Development Officer will be funded for four years , responsible to progress the organisation’s continued service and to optimise coordination of other local transport resources. This postholder will lead in designing a Better Access to Transport (B.A.T.) model, that includes research and implementation of a coordinated scheduling system with the locality’s transport schemes. It is hoped this will demonstrate a best practice model of cost savings and efficiency by assigning the most appropriate organisation or group able to provide safe and dependable transport for individuals within a priority of health-related/non-emergency medical transport needs.

The B.A.T. Development Officer would achieve the following: - Help to raise the profile of the target area’s diverse Community Transport related organisations, particularly to the appropriate Councils (Norfolk County Council; North Norfolk District Council, Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk and Breckland Council); - Provide on-going support and monitoring of existing WNCTP’s service provision and develop new transport links for mobility-impaired individuals. Also, to seek additional funding and sponsorship particularly for vehicle capital replacement. - If the B.A.T. model can be achieved, it is anticipated that an immediate additional 400 transport-disadvantaged and therefore socially excluded individuals will benefit from this grant, in the initial year. A greater number of people will benefit from access to services, and this impact of further improving transport will also have a positive effect on family and carers.
