“It’s a sad day for all of us at HCT Group” said Lynn McClelland, HCT Group Chief Executive, parent organisation of BCT.
“We understand just how important these services are for the people that use them and it is the last thing we wanted to do.
“The move follows a period where we have been rocked by multiple challenges – a period of difficult trading prior to the pandemic, the financial impact of the pandemic itself, followed immediately by the current surge in fuel prices and the cost-of-living crisis. This has led to a position where continued delivery of these services is unsustainable.
“We have tried to the very last minute to find an alternative operator for these services, but sadly, we have been unsuccessful, which means these services will now come to an end.”
