WHO ARE WE?

Transport 17 is a small, friendly, charitable organisation which has existed within Totley and the wider community since 1984.   

We provide transport services to older and vulnerable people predominantly – but not exclusively – living in South West Sheffield who would otherwise be unable to leave home, thereby providing the opportunity for them to socialise in the local community. This reduces isolation, has a positive impact on their mental health, and improves not only their own quality of life, but that of their friends and families.

The organisation is non-profit making and is embedded within the community allowing for partnerships with local statutory and non-statutory groups. We are dependent on volunteers to provide our transport
services; however, this in turn provides opportunities for individuals across the age range to develop their skills, confidence, and friendship groups.

We currently make over 100 passenger trips each week to 9 clubs in S17 and the neighbouring areas from Monday to Friday using three minibuses.

We rely on volunteers to drive our buses, assist our passengers, raise funds and run the management committee.

They opened the prison doors for me.

I had no key.

They came with a smile and helpful arm

And oodles of charm.

They opened my world and let me see

There’s help out there for you and me.

The blue ‘bus rattles round the corner,

But unlike little Jack Horner,

With his curds and whey;

I’m off to a luncheon club.

So to all these caring volunteers

I lift my cuppa tea,

And say from me grateful thanks

CHEERS friends CHEERS.
