Testing Taxi Services in West Suffolk

October 2018

SCODP are working with Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council to look at the provision of taxi services for disabled people. 

 

They are looking for disabled and non-disabled people across West Suffolk to either book a taxi from home or to use a taxi from one of the taxi ranks.  Volunteers can use the taxi at a time to suit them as long as they complete the project before the beginning of December 2018.

SCODP will pay each volunteer a flat fee of £20.00 per person when SCODP have received their form.
