Adult Social Care Transport Policy March 2011

The Adult Social Care directorate enables access to transport in a variety of ways to people who are eligible for social care across Gloucestershire. Access to affordable transport so that people who are older or disabled can get to the shops, their dentist, their friends and family etc, is an important element to preserving independence.

This Policy reflects national and local priorities and underpins the proposed changes to the existing arrangements for access to transport, including Gloucestershire County Council assisted transport (mini-buses currently operated by Gloucestershire County day centres).

It incorporates the introduction of personal budgets; once a person is allocated a personal budget then if there is a need for transport then the cost of this will normally be met from that budget. The strategy aims to ensure that these transport options are available for people who are not eligible for support as well as those who choose to pay for it from a Personal Budget.
