Community groups helping vulnerable north Norfolk residents with transport have received a £19,000 boost to their funding.
The projects were awarded the cash from North Norfolk District Council’s (NNDC) transport fund in December.
Ludham’s village car scheme received £1,500 for drivers who take residents to medical appointments; North Walsham’s Good Neighbour Scheme, which includes one-off transport help, benefitted from £2,000; and North Norfolk Community Transport was given £15,812 for a wheelchair accessible transport service.
Eric Seaward, NNDC deputy leader: “Community transport is increasingly playing a vital role in services across north Norfolk.
“I am delighted three local projects have been funded.”
Applications should be submitted before February 22, with decisions due in March.
