New Consultation - Bexley Council's Assisted Transport Policy

posted 13 Apr 2016, 06:19 by Bexley Mencap
Bexley's Assisted Transport service provides specialist transport through a variety of options for eligible adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues and physical disabilities.  The council's funding is reducing significantly and it is reviewing every aspect of its work and spending.  The Council is looking to re-model the way transport services for adults are shaped and delivered in such a way as to deliver a cost-effective service and the best outcomes for residents.

The Council would like your feedback on their plans which are available on their website here, including an Easy Read version. You can either complete the online survey or return your comments on the paper version (by downloading it from this page) to any Bexley library, or by post to:Communications Team, Civic Offices, 2 Watling Street, Bexleyheath DA6 7AT
