LORDS TAVERNERS MINIBUSES – Funding for specially adapted, wheelchair accessible minibuses

Since 1976 the Lord's Taverners has put pver 1,000 accessible minibuses on the road.  Last year the Lords Taverners delivered 29 specially-adapted, wheelchair-accessible minibuses to schools, clubs and youth organisations across the UK.
The Taverners’ iconic green minibuses enable schools or youth  organisations to engage young people in sporting and recreational activities and help them develop life skills such as visiting shops and interacting with people in the local community.
They also provide essential transport to and from school for pupils whose families require help with transport.
Lord's Taverners minibuses are based on the current Ford Transit model, with a diesel engine.
The average cost to the charity of an accessible minibus is £52,500.
Applications will be accepted from schools and/or charitable organisations that cater for young people under the age of 25 who have a physical/ sensory/ learning disability.
PLEASE NOTE: The Lord's Taverners are unable to support schools that cater for socially disadvantaged children, or mainstream schools for children with behavioural problems.
The next application deadline is Friday 30 January 2015.
For further information, visit the Lords Taverners website.
