Annual General Meeting and 25 Years Celebrations

Thank you to The Worshipful The Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea, for hosting our event and undertaking the task of presenting Long Service Awards to Pepe Francis from Ebony Steelband, a founding member of the Westway CT Management Committee and Jose Berrio, a long standing employee of Westway CT who has now retired. 

Director Andrew Kelly says,

'A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for our celebration. Before we look at the work we have undertaken in the last year I would like to draw your attention to the 25th Anniversary publication that maps out our journey to where we are today. You will see that we have tried to encapsulate many of the achievements and milestones along the way. The growth and figures speak for themselves, but as we know it’s the human impact that is important and it’s not all about the numbers.

This year has been another one of starting new initiatives and working with our partners to deliver even more than before. We are particularly proud of our Innovation Fund that was launched this year. The purpose of this fund is to support existing and emerging new groups with new and innovative ideas. The fund can be used to try things out and pilot new services. Vehicle and driver costs are covered and for those who have been successful it has been of real benefit in furthering their work in the community.....

25 Years Supporting Our Local Community

This year we are celebrating 25 Years Supporting Our Local Community.  

25 years ago Kensington and Chelsea Community Transport was registered as an Industrial and Provident Society, run by the local community. Since then we have grown from a small scheme, to a thriving Social Enterprise that now employs over 50 people. We started out with 6 vehicles and we now have over 50 and with the help of an incredible taskforce of staff and amazing volunteers, we deliver vital services for local community groups and individuals, while retaining focus on the most important reason for what we do and that's the people we do it for. 

We are looking forward to celebrating this milestone at our AGM in September and we hope that you can join us. Details will follow.

Why Community Matters

ECT Charity recently published the Why Community Transport Matters ground-breaking report and our Director Andrew Kelly and his Deputy Kathleen Lyons were asked to be guest speakers at the launch night of the report, which was held at the London Living Room in City Hall on Wednesday the 20th of January.

Andrew and Kathleen spoke on behalf of the London Strategic Community Transport Forum's Social Value Working Group, made up of representatives from Westway CT, Ealing CT and Wandsworth CT.

The report is an amalgamation of two studies led to help community transport organisations around the UK demonstrate their social value. 

In the first, ECT Charity worked with Deloitte to produce 'Tackling Loneliness and Isolation through Community Transport', a major piece of research into the economic cost of loneliness and isolation. 

The report concludes that community transport schemes have the potential to make savings of between £0.4 billion and £1.1 billion a year for the public purse, as well as reducing pressure on public services and helping older people to remain active members of society.

The second study, 'A Practical Method for Measuring Community Transport Social Value', will help community transport organisations make a compelling case to commissioners on the value of their services. It was developed through the London Strategic Community Transport Forum (LSCTF). 

You can download the Why Community Transport Matters report and See the video on the ECT Charity website.

Westway CT Awarded with FORS Accreditation

We are pleased to tell you that we are now FORS Bronze Accredited. FORS, run by TfL, is a method of recognising fleet operations which comply with the requirements of the FORS standard which is based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.  

FORS is a voluntary certification scheme aimed at ensuring that fleet operators work lawfully and to best practice as stated in the FORS standard. Specifiers (that is, those who either purchase or set the specification for fleet services) may ask that their suppliers are FORS recognised. The standards cover:  

  • Management
  • Vehicles
  • Drivers
  • Operations

To become FORS bronze accredited we had to prove that we met the criteria set out in the FORS standards and this was checked during a formal company audit carried out at our premises by an independent FORS auditor.    

We are very proud of this accreditation. For more information about FORS see the website.

2015 AGM

We had a great turnout for our 2015 AGM and it was lovely to see so many people from our member organisations. 

Many of this year's achievements were discussed at the event as well as our future plans. We also took the opportunity to present some of our chosen staff and volunteers with a Certificate of Commendation in recognition of their amazing work and support. 
 
Four people were selected to receive a certificate: 
 
Philip Maguire, who is a long-standing driver who goes out of his way for not only the users of our transport services, but also the rest of the team. He supports everyone whenever he can. Philip is also one of our most flexible drivers, from taking vehicles to their MOT or to the tyre shop, to being called up at the last minute to cover when someone else has dropped out. 
 
Pamela Rhamit joined our team in 2013 as a PA for Group Transport and Door to Door Services. Pamela has really made a difference to the people who use the services, always a cheery smile and willing to help as much as she can, carrying shopping for those that are unable to do so, and aiding passengers to board and alight the vehicle. Pamela works regularly with three different drivers who drive on different days of the week, and always works well as a team with them all, helping and supporting the driver.
 
Joseph Grech started volunteering exactly two years ago and is an indispensable addition to our team of dedicated drivers. He devotes every Wednesday to driving car scheme customers, to get to a variety of appointments and in doing so has made a huge difference to many peoples’ lives. Joseph is a vital link between our office staff and our car scheme customers as he regularly feeds back important information regarding the customers’ current health and requirements that are often impossible to fully understand over the telephone.
 
Christine Cridge joined the Westway CT team in October 2009 and was a dedicated member of staff for nearly 6 years, before leaving in July 2015. Providing administrative support to the Director and his Deputy, as well as the rest of the team whenever needed; often taking sole responsibility for projects such as catering for meetings, collecting raffle prizes for Westway CT parties and much more. Christine is an energetic, bubbly and enthusiastic person who always had a smile on her face and brought laughter to a room. While working at Westway CT, Christine never missed anyones birthday, always made time for people and had their best interests at heart. We will miss her. Unfortunately Christine could not be here for the event. 
 
The certificates were presented by Susan Dolton Director of Kensington and Chelsea Foundation.
 
Thank you to everyone who came along. If you would like to see pictures of the event please visit our Facebook page.

Catch The Bus Week

Catch the Bus Week (29 June to 5 July 2015) is a nationwide campaign run by Greener Journeys to raise awareness of the benefits of catching the bus: how it can “make the economy stronger, help the job market work better and to build a more inclusive society.” The CTA's case studies show how community transport can do all of these things.

Volunteers Week

We have a team of around 20 active volunteers. Here are some who help out on a regular basis.
 
Mary Ashby Volunteer
 
Mary Ashby is one of our long-standing volunteers. Mary drives our Door to Door members to appointments, group activities and shopping trips, giving up her time wihtout any compensation. We would like to acknowledge her contribution to our Community Car Scheme. We couldn't accomplish what we do without her. 
 
Alex Allsopp Volunteer
 
Alex Allsopp gives up her time every Tuesday, to drive our members around the borough to their groups and activitites, as well as GP appointments, etc. Alex drives her own car and runs around all day long. We are so very grateful to Alex, who is a tireless contributor. 
 
Ronald Ellis Volunteer
 
Ronald Ellis helps keep our fleet of 47 vehicles clean and tidy. He works tirelessly to make sure they meet his high standards. We are very grateful. 
 
We would like to say a huge thank you to ALL of our amazing volunteers.

AVIVA Community Fund Awards

We need your help! 

We are being considered to be one of the projects selected by AVIVA to potentially receive a Community Fund Award which offers us the chance to secure funding of up to £25,000 for a new community car scheme fully accessible vehicle. 

We have been successful in getting through to the voting round, so all we need now is for people to vote for our project. Each person has 10 votes and we would like to ask if you and anyone in your contacts list, volunteers and staff would take a few minutes to vote for us. If we get enough votes we will be shortlisted to the finals where a team of judges will pick the most worthy projects to receive the funding. 

All you have to do is register to vote by clicking on this link and then once you have verified your registration all you need to do is search for ‘Westway CT’ and allocate your votes to us. It would be fantastic if we win and get the funds needed to replace the accessible community car scheme vehicle that we use to help less able people live an independent life. 

We really do need to drum up the votes!!! Just click on the banner below...

Shuttle Buses for TfL

December 2014 saw the first instance of us running a London Bus Route. BR1 and BR2 were bus services that were commissioned by Borough Market to provide accessible transport to the market during the closure of London Bridge Station over the Christmas period. We had to apply for a London Service Permit and meet the exact standards of TfL. 


This is an important step forward for us now as we are registered to provide mainstream bus services and makes it easier for us to be able to offer such services in the future.

Following on from 2012 when some 40 CTs came together to successfully deliver accessible shuttle services to make 2012 the most accessible games ever. We should build on this legacy and look at other ways we can work together collaboratively. We will also be discussing What the social value of community transport is? In delivering transport, we naturally focus on outcomes. Is it possible to quantify the social value of a journey for an isolated individual? How would this fit in with impact measurement especially when some are fixated on KPIs? Is it a matter of quantifying numbers of trips? How could we, for example quantify unmet need? We are looking forward to seeing you all.

New Fleet of turbine equipped vehicles

We are proud to announce that we have replaced our whole fleet with Turbine Equipped Vehicles. This new innovative means that our vehicles are powered completely by the wind and sun, thus saving on fuel and being the most Eco friendly fleet in the whole country (maybe the world). The vehicles have solar panels on the roof and they alone can generate enough energy to power external floodlights and on extremely windy days we estimate reducing driving time by 25 minutes on long journeys. Our spokesperson Lipra Folo said "we are looking forward to a windy but sunny Summer and we are encouraging our drivers to eat more Baked Beans, so that they can help out should the need arise"

Mr John Walker Receives The Mayors Award March 2013

Following a nomination to the Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea from Westway CT our reasons for nominating John are below.

John Walker started volunteering with Westway Community Transport back in July 2004 and has been a Volunteer driver for the Community Car Scheme since then. He has also given his time to be a trustee and is an active member of the Westway Community Transport Management Committee and Sub Committees.

Any feedback received from Car Scheme users about John indicates that he has always been positive in his attitude and they say they have always found him helpful, polite, conscientious and caring. John has a real desire to help people in need and contributes to providing this essential service to residents of RBKC, who find it difficult to use public transport. John makes regular time to support the Community Car Scheme and donates not only his time but the use of his car.

John specialises in helping people that need to travel long distances and without his contribution to the Car Scheme people would not be able to visit their relatives and for some this trip would be access to a holiday. John would think nothing of taking someone to the coast for a holiday and returning a week later to bring them home.

His contributions to the Westway CT Management Committee and the Car Scheme have been amazing and he has helped hundreds of people over the nine years he has been involved with Westway CT. We believe that his qualities should be rewarded.

Our Nomination was also supported by the following organisations

St Teresa's
Inkerman House
St Stephen's Charity
British Legion
Metropolitan Police Earls Court

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. 

    Joanna Peik-Azadi
    Innovation Fund
  • 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.

    Brooke Kerr, AGE UK K&C
    Green CT Cars
  • 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. 

    Innovation Fund
    Fatima Ahmed, FLIP
  • The Innovation Fund has been of a great benefit to Lunch Club+ 4 The Bind. We have been on about 4 shopping trips - and counting this coming Saturday - 2 seaside trips

    Bill Gough, Lunch Club 4 the Blind
    Innovation Fund
  • Transport is very well maintained. Drivers and Escorts are excellent and have a good supportive manner which is very important with older people.

  • Adrian is a brilliant Tutor, clear and easy to understand. So happy I chose this company, I also met Kevin; seriously both wonderful tutors. So relaxed, thank you guys.

  • 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.
