Our future plan

In these difficult economic times, where budgets are tighter, like many charitable organisations we are always looking for creative ways to raise funds, without burdening our users with extra costs. 

We constantly research different methods of funding that are efficient and above all sustainable, so that we can provide a better and more affordable service to the many local people who rely on us.  

 



After careful consideration we have opted to host an outdoor advertising tower, on our site, which will be visible to drivers on the A40. 

This option appealed to us because the income generated by this would secure funds and enable us to:    

  • continue to update our fleet ensuring a reliable service

  • maintain price subsidies for our users

  • expand our services

  • explore the use of bio fuels, electric vehicles and other new technologies

  • become more financially independent 

  • have a reliable and predictable source of income allowing us to employ more staff 

The impact of the display structure has been carefully considered by a team of professionals including architects who are designing a structure that has minimal impact to our neighbours yet looks visually interesting from the A40 (westway). 

The proposed structure will have a single digital screen 6m x 9m facing eastbound traffic only and will display a sequence of adverts which will change every 10-20 seconds. The contents of the adverts will be controlled remotely enabling it to be updated quickly and easily unlike traditional print boards. The screen will not show any moving images. The brightness (luminance) of the screen will be controlled by light sensors, which will be set to a maximum night time luminance of 300 cd/sqm - half the maximum luminance recommended by the institute of Lighting Professionals Guidance for advertisments and below that of most digital screens operating in London. During the daytime the brightness of the screens will react to weather conditions. 

We recently submitted our planning application to RB Kensington & Chelsea and this has now been approved. We are now in the process of putting this contract out to tender, so please do get in touch using our Enquiry Form if you have any questions or would like any further information.

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.
