What is a social enterprise? 

Social enterprises are working to make a difference across the UK and beyond, but not enough people know what they are or how they work. 

The Social Enterprise Mark is the brand for social enterprises and was launched 1st February, 2010. The Mark identifies businesses which meet defined criteria for social enterprise, and consumers will recognise that businesses displaying the Mark are trading to benefit people and planet. The Social Enterprise Mark aims to raise awareness of what social enterprises' do in order to get more people to buy from, engage with, start up and work for them.

When I spend money with Green CT Cars where does my money go?

Green CT Cars is a project run by Westway CT. Westway CT launched Green CT Cars as an ethical commercial venture so that any profits generated could be injected into Westway CT’s not for profit activities. These include maintaining a fleet of over 50 standard and accessible vehicles, offered at subsidised rates to individuals and local voluntary & community groups. 

Westway CT delivers training through a very successful scheme, called Drive Time Project, aimed at getting long term unemployed people back into work by training them to upgrade their driver's licence to a PCV D1 category with the aim of enabling them to find employment as minibus or large bus drivers. 

For elderly and disabled people, Westway CT offers a Shopper Service for both RBKC and Westminster residents, a minibus that calls at the home of registered members to take them shopping at the local supermarket and then back home, offering assistance in carrying their shopping bags. 

Westway CT also runs a Community Car Scheme for people living in RBKC and the Westminster Community Transport Service specifically for people living in Westminster. This is a subsidised door-to-door accessible transport service where volunteers kindly donate their time to drive elderly and disabled people to appointments, meetings and generally go about their everyday business. It is our aim to improve this service and to offer more choice. For this reason, Green CT Cars will deliver subsidised Car Scheme journeys when cars are not commercially deployed.

What do our customers say?

  • This is the first time that young people have engaged in trampolineing in this way and they had a wonderful time. This trip would have not been possible if it wasn’t for the Innovation Fund as the young people travelled to the venue via Westway minibus services.

  • I just wanted to say thanks for organising the taxi last night and how great Adebe is. Your drivers are always lovely but he was especially helpful and it’s always so reassuring to know our members are being looked after.

  • A taxi from the station to the farm is over £10 and this alone is a price many parents cannot afford. Having access to the Innovation fund has meant that we can support with the cost of transport, meaning the parents can access this opportunity and keep their money for buying fruit when they are there.

  • From the minute I walked into Westway CT I knew it was the place for me. The people are lovely, I was supported all the way through my training (although it was relatively easy after the HGV training) and I was able to do volunteering work and gain some experience and confidence whilst hoping for paid employment.
