“One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.”
- Shannon L. Alder.
At ACCT we give the elderly, lonely, isolated, mental or physically challenged and other disadvantaged members of the community a new lease of life by providing safe, reliable and accessible Community Transport. Because we understand the worry of trying to get to a medical appointment, or get some much needed shopping without access to public transport due to cost or accessibility, we're here to help and relieve that worry by providing essential transport to those who need it most.
To achieve this, ACCT offers four services: A Social Car scheme, used primarily to transport clients to medical appointments, group meetings and social visits, a Wheelchair Accessible Car service for those whose mobility is severely limited and who cannot transfer into a standard vehicle, a Shopping Bus service which runs four times a week to varying supermarkets across Littlehampton and Rustington and a Club Bus service, which runs only on a Friday and provides trips to local visitor attractions, restaurants, places of local and historical interest, garden and shopping centres. So if you, or someone you know, needs our help then have a look at the services we provide below and then give one of our friendly team a call on to book your vehicle where they'll only be too happy to help.
With the recent merger of Sammy Transport and Arun Co-Ordinated Community Transport this website will be updated to reflect the changes of this merger and the benefits that this new Community Transport service will bring to the local communities..
At the heart of every non profit charity or organisation is it's lifeblood: It's volunteers. Those special people who give up their time freely in order to give something back to the community. Without these volunteers the organisations just would not function.
At ACCT we are no different. We are indebted to each and everyone of our fantastic volunteers who dedicate many hours each week, come rain or shine and help us, help our community in transporting them to their destinations.
If you would like to join our team of extraordinary volunteers and feel you could contribute and want to find out more please follow the link below.
