SIT? “It’s good to go places” – Literature review of community transport

Through ‘A Stitch in Time’ practitioners and others have identified that community transport plays a key role in ensuring older people can access services, social and other opportunities that they both want and need. This leads onto important outcomes for older people around keeping active, maintaining independence, staying connected to family, friends and their community, in turn this supports physical and mental health. In this review of key pieces of literature, we try to identify if formal or research based evidence backs up this picture.
