“Having engaged extensively with the sector and the Department, I am pleased to have received confirmation that our local community transport providers will receive an extension in their core ‘dial-a-lift’ funding for the entirety of this financial year.

Community Transport remains a lifeline for many rural and isolated communities throughout Northern Ireland, providing in the region of 200,000 journeys annually.

The Department has rightly recognised the importance of this service, by confirming funding for the entirety of this financial year. I wish to thank service users and the sector for their support in securing this positive outcome.”
