Waltham Forest Community Transport is has been established for more than 18 years.
Our aim is to provide a sustainable group transport facility for local community groups and organisations in Waltham Forest.
In partnership with Waltham Forest Shopmobility, CTWF and LBWF Social Services run a shopping service called Door to Store. Door to Store collects elderly & disabled people from their homes and takes them to a local store (i.e. Morrison’s, Sainsburys, Tesco or Asda,) and returns them home with their shopping. To join the scheme you need to join Shopmobility for £2 lifetime membership. Each shopping trip will cost £2.
CTWF have a number of contracts with other providers of services. Currently we hold a contract providing home to school services with Hackney Community Transport (CT Plus) for whom we provide transport for 5 routes.
CTWF offer a brokerage and vehicle purchase advice service for local groups who are contemplating purchasing their own vehicle or wish to make better use of an existing vehicle.
CTWF provides training for: –
Drivers to develop their skills for driving larger vehicles with the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) – standard and accessible and the D1 Licence entitlement.
Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) for vehicle escorts and health care staff.
Minibus Emergency Evacuation Procedures for both drivers & escorts.
Manual Handling training for local groups and organisations.
We can also arrange Emergency Aid training for those interested.
