RATC works alongside clients to create better care services
for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.

Day care services need many-to-one transport, usually in minibuses or taxis, in order to ensure people can attend. Successor services to day care often require one-to-one or few-to-one transport, to a wider selection of destinations, adding considerable complexity to the task. Local authority and other day care commissioners can find they lack people with transport skills. RATC works alongside clients to create better care services for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.

At Milton Keynes Learning Disability Services, RATC and TAS Partnership have investigated the current transport arrangements. We will now work with service managers to make improvements to transport provision and to simplify and strengthen its management.

Our experience is not always about the future of transport, sometimes it concerns the past. Richard Armitage has acted as an expert witness in a criminal court case where it was alleged that a council transport manager and a minibus leasing contractor had defrauded the council. Forensic analysis of the council's minibus leases demonstrated it would have been cheaper for the council to hire all of its minibuses off the accused, suggesting fraud had not taken place.
