We have developed a range of good practice documents to support voluntary transport schemes in Nottinghamshire as part of the Mobility Strategy.
We are developing a 'Quality Standard for Community Transport Providers' and have developed a Statement of Shared Values [PDF]. This includes standards in key areas such as health and safety, equal opportunities, volunteer management and legal compliance.
