ACVO is delighted to be able to present this report which has been the result of many months of research by researchers from  Robert Gordon University’s Institute for Management, Governance, and Society (IMaGeS) as part of the Change Funded Social Transport Project. This project seeks  to explore how mobility challenges can stop older people remaining active and socially connected as well as accessing health care.  It is not the end of the process but is an important first step in raising the issues surrounding  this important issue.

The Group led by ACVO consisted of professionals from NESTRANS, Scottish Care,  HTAP (Health Transport Action Plan) and RGU Transport experts, they have formed an excellent cross- sector working relationship which has helped to understand the complex processes which surround transport delivery especially in this new climate of Integration and partnership-working.
