Travel grants for disabled people’s groups
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) provides Small Travel Grants to help meet the needs of older or disabled people who have serious mobility difficulties and who find it difficult to use ordinary public transport.
Each grant is worth up to £150 and must be used to pay for transport; for example, commercial coach or minibus hire, community transport or taxis. Trips on Ring and Ride services are not eligible.
The grants are for voluntary organisations of older or disabled people or for voluntary organisations that stage events which are likely to attract significant numbers of older or disabled people.
The trip or event must be a special one-off occasion and not a regular meeting. It must take place in Greater Manchester or within 10 miles of the county boundary and the people involved must live in Greater Manchester. All organisations must have a bank account.
Applications must be received at least two weeks before the event or trip takes place.
For further information or advice about the grants, contact Jessica Powell on 0161 244 1658.
