Go West!

Posted: 01 Nov 2006

HCT is pleased to announce that the substantial expansion of its operations has continued with the opening of our new depot in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  Our services now span north, south, east and west London for the very first time.

In August the Borough awarded us a 7 year contract to run social services transport.  Our contract commenced on 1 October and will run for 7 years.

The transport service is provided for users who cannot readily use conventional public transport to travel to 1 of 5 Borough Day Centres.  Around 200 people are expected to use it each week.

Dai Powell, Chief Executive Officer of HCT commented;

"This development is yet another example of how our social enterprise business model, knowledge base and skill set supplies a radical alternative to those organisations that are tasked with commissioning public sector transport provision.  We are very excited about this development and really look forward to working with and supporting the activities of Kensington and Chelsea social services."
