We support community and voluntary groups in Rushcliffe, from advice centres and lunch clubs to wildlife trusts and scout groups. We're here to help and inspire groups and organisations to get started and run professionally. We offer expert advice and assistance with training, fundraising and volunteering, as well as giving encouragement and moral support.
And because we believe in what these groups stand for, we endeavour to represent their views to those who make decisions affecting their work. To get a fuller picture, click on the Services, Projects and Volunteers tabs.
Rushcliffe and Gedling Voluntary Transport Schemes provide door to door transport services to over 500 people across Rushcliffe and Gedling. The schemes are open to local residents who finds it difficult to access suitable transport. The majority of our passengers are older people. The service is provided by volunteers who use their own cars in return for expenses paid by the passenger. We have two part time vacancies for the scheme.
Following the announcement of the closure of its transport scheme on 16th October 2015, Gedling VTS has worked together with Nottinghamshire County Council to find an alternative provider for the service.
As a result, Rushcliffe CVS has agreed to take on the scheme from Monday 19th October, 2015. You can download a leaflet giving more details of how the scheme runs here.

To use the scheme you must be unable to make your journey using public or any other means of transport. Reasons for eligibility might include geographical remoteness, disability or ill health. You need to be able to get in and out.
