Objectives

People to Places provide a community transport service for the residents of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead and its neighbourhood who have transportation and/or mobility issues due to age, sickness or disability (mental or physical), poverty or because of a lack of adequate and safe public services. As a charitable organisation, we deliver high quality services that provide social benefits to the local community.

People to Places operate a range of community transport services including dial-a-ride for individual members, transport for local groups, taking people with learning difficulties or dementia to daycare centres and home-to-school transport. Our shopmobility service operates in both Maidenhead and Windsor offering a range of mobility equipment to meet all needs.

We are a 'people based' organisation with over 60 staff and volunteers who work closely with our members to enable them to get out of their homes to socialise, shop and attend important appointments.

Activities

Our services include:

Shopmobility – The service that loans manual wheelchairs, powered chairs and mobility scooters to people with limited mobility to visit leisure and commercial facilities within the local town or shopping centres.  A new service for extended, remote scooter hires is just commencing (as of April 2018).

Community Transport - People to Places have a fleet of 16 minibuses, driven by a combination of trained Drivers, both paid and voluntary.  All of these are fully accessible for people with restricted mobility. People to Places minibuses are also available for hire by local voluntary organisations and community services.

Travel Assisted Payment Schemes (TAPS) - This scheme is funded by the Local Authority for residents of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead who are unable to use conventional public transport because of their disability and who do not drive.

MiDAS and PATS Training – People to Places are members of the national MiDAS scheme.  This means that all of our Drivers have been trained in safe driving techniques and our Passenger Assistants are trained in assisting people with mobility issues.  However, all of our team are recruited on the basis that they have an empathy with our service users
