a Registered Charity, keeping TRIP working and providing
services to older people, the disabled and rurally
isolated is an ongoing financial struggle.
cuts in local, district and county council budgets,
funding is becoming ever more difficult. As well as
receiving some grants, TRIP carries out numerous paid
contracts for Devon County Council and other bodies
to ensure our services can continue to operate.
would also like to thank GP Valeting of Heathpark
Honiton for keeping all our minibuses and accesible
vehicles in such a clean condition (when we have time
to take them there).
our work includes:
the TRIP services including Ring & Ride, accessible
transport and voluntary car services plus: a school
run to the Honiton special needs Millwater school-
serving the area around Seaton. We also provide transport
for children to Honiton Primary School.
of the F5 & F18 Fare Car service around the Honiton
a single point of contact for transport information
and advice for people of East Devon & Exeter to
obtain transport to medical appointments at district
is paid by various councils for providing these services,
BUT, each year there is still a shortfall.
