Have your say on transport for vulnerable adults in Cambridgeshire
- Credit: Archant
More views are needed to help work out the transport needs of vulnerable adults in the county.
Cambridgeshire County Council has drafted a policy for providing adult social care transport to help decide whether transport can be provided as part of a care package.
The policy also outlines how resources are handed out to ensure the service is equal and fair.
Officers need to know how transport helps vulnerable adults keep a healthy, independent life and they want to find out what works well and what, if anything, is missing.
The County Council has a legal duty to provide travel or assistance with travel arrangements for chronically sick or disabled people.

The questionnaire asks people how they usually travel – their mode of travel and the reasons for their journeys. It also invites residents to indicate if they would be willing to pay for or contribute towards transport costs.
The consultation runs until March 12 and a report detailing the outcome will be discussed at the Council’s Adults Committee on May 26.
