40 Accessible Minibuses delivering 12,000 trips per month across Dublin
Bluebird Care, one of Irelands leading health and social care service providers is delighted to be renewing its partnership with Vantastic for 2018. Vantastic are an accessible transport charity, and Bluebird Care will continue to support them in the delivery of 12,000 monthly trips across Dublin city and county.
Cormac Moloney, the charity’s CEO says corporate social responsibility is a vital part of their revenue stream.
“Vantastic’s focus for 2018 with the support of Bluebird Care is to provide a transport link for people with varying degrees of ability, which affords independence, well-being, good mental health and in many cases interaction with other people.
Through the funding provided by Bluebird Care, we have not only been able to keep the wheels turning on the minibuses but have successfully grown our Accessible Minibus and Mobility Car Rental services. The partnership to date has enabled us to transport 140,000 passengers on our low cost minibus service and provided 3,000 days of wheelchair accessible car rental.
This partnership is about supporting the invaluable services Vantastic provides and two service providers coming together making a meaningful impact on the communities we are both part of.”
Brian MacGoey is the Managing Director of Bluebird Care Ireland. He believes that Bluebird Cares mission to enable customers to live as independently as possible, ties in perfectly with the service provided by Vantastic.
“We deliver 12,000 home care visits per week to people who live in Dublin and its surrounding areas. While we ensure that people can remain in their own homes, the vital link for full independence is transport.
“So often we take for granted the chance to go out, meet friends, go shopping or even visit our GP. This is why we are so delighted to partner with Vantastic and support their invaluable work.”
Bluebird Care enjoyed a day out and about with Vantastic, meeting many of their customers. They got to see and hear first-hand how the services Vantastic provide make a worthwhile and tangible difference to the quality of their customers lives.
