A new Charitable Interest Organisation (CIO) has been formed to meet significant identified need for transport in the Havens area (Saltdean to Seaford and surrounding villages).
Havens Community Cars, a volunteer car driver scheme, is currently recruiting and training drivers who will volunteer for a few hours per week and will be reimbursed for their fuel and travel expenses.
The scheme was launched by the Havens Community Hub after they saw a need for Havens residents to get to hospitals or clinics including Brighton, Eastbourne or Haywards Heath and daily living journeys that other charities or statutory organisations cannot currently meet the demand for.
The charity is registered with the national body for community transport, the CTA, and aims to go live as a service to passengers from April 27th 2020.
