Community Transport Grant

A Community Transport Grant is now available to support community transport schemes across Dorset. Dorset County Council are paying grants of up to £5000 to support communities who want to set up a community transport scheme. Grants are also available to existing schemes.

The Community Transport Grant will fund costs associated with starting up and operating a community transport scheme. These include vehicle purchase costs, IT software that supports effective operation, marketing of schemes and training of staff or volunteers.

The Community Transport Grant is a match funding grant. Applicants will need to demonstrate a clear outcome and show that at least 50% of costs are met from other sources.

More details are available on the Community Transport grant application form (pdf, 275kb) (opens in a new window)

If you are unable to print a copy of the application form, you can request a form by e-mail at
