Aberdeen City Services

We provide services under contract to Aberdeen City council for clients with profound difficulties. None of these services are open to others since they are specific to Social Work or Education clients.

In autumn 2014 we started working with ACVO Aberdeen and the Social Transport Working Group to provide transport for individuals and groups through funding from the Change Fund. This was extremely successful and although funding ends in March 2016 the project has enabled us and ACVO to diversify into supporting the HTAP (Health and Transport Plan)THiNC services.
THInC (Transport to Health & Social Care Information Centre) was launched in January 2013 as an information hub for patients travelling to health appointments who might require advice on available transport options. The project was initially located in Elgin with staff management provided by the Scottish Ambulance Service. Funding was initially provided by Health & Transport Action Plan partners (NHS Grampian, Nestrans, Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Moray Council and the Scottish Ambulance Service).

THInC: Transport In The City Pilot
Through monitoring calls to THInC, unmet transport demand was identified in Aberdeen City. This resulted in the THiNC project manager, discussing with us the idea of making a funding bid to support the service with the provision of two minibuses running demand responsive transport in Aberdeen City. This project has been running since 2 March 2015. Bookings are taken by the THInC call handler with transport provided by ourselves. This pilot will end on 16 December 2016.
If you would like to access this service please call the THiNC line on 01224 665568
