Funding & Support

We would like to thank everyone who support the work of Swindon Dial A Ride. As well as those who pay for our services and provide grants this includes volunteers who donate thousands of hours of their time each year and our suppliers, with a particular mention for Mike Allen Services who keep our vehicles in tip top condition and are always there when we have a problem and CATSS who provide our booking software.

Funding at Swindon Dial a Ride

Our income comes from passenger fares, vehicle hire, grants, donations and fees for training.  We receive grants from Wiltshire Council and Purton Parish Council to support the Dial A Ride service in their area and from Wiltshire Community Foundation to support the Volunteer Car service.

Swindon Dial A Ride does not receive any statutory funding.

Fundraising helps to pay for new vehicles.

How can you help?

  • Collections and donations from individuals or companies are always very welcome.
  • If you organise fundraising events, why not nominate us as your chosen charity?
  • If a loved one passes away perhaps you could consider us for donations in lieu of flowers at the funeral.
  • And finally, please remember us in your Will.

You can always help us further by simply 'spreading the word.' If this is the first time you have seen or heard of us, please pass our details on to others who could benefit from our services.
