Is your group based in Hammersmith & Fulham? Did it suffer from the effects of reduced funding this year?
We understand how difficult it is for groups when funding is reduced, often making transport one of the last priorities on the list. At Westway CT we have been thinking about how we can help reduce your transport costs, and we believe we can help!
We are offering to train up-to two of your Volunteers in MiDAS Training free of charge through the third phase of Westway CT’s Innovation Fund.
Being MiDAS trained means that a volunteer can drive our minibuses for your group. If you do not use volunteers or you don’t have a volunteer available who can drive for you, we will do our best to match you with volunteer via the Hammersmith & Fulham Volunteer Centre
If your group is based in Hammersmith & Fulham and is interested in receiving help from the Innovation Fund, all you need to do is submit your interest via our Contact Form. Once we have received your details, we will be in touch with information about the next step.
History of the Innovation Fund
In 2015/16 we launched the Innovation Fund, where groups could apply for ‘transport credits’ towards the cost of minibus transport if they were introducing new and innovative projects. Westway CT made £20,000 available to the fund which helped seven groups achieve its goals. The fund was open to groups in RBKC, Westminster and Hammersmith & Fulham.
In 2016/17 Westway CT reopened the fund, and the uptake was equally as high.
In 2018 the Innovation Fund is available to provide FREE MiDAS Training to volunteers who support community groups and voluntary organisations based in Hammersmith & Fulham.
