The Transport Advocates project provided an information service around transport issues to members of the public in East Durham. This was around bus timetables, train timetables, bus passes, assistance with funding towards transport and also on specialist transport services such as Community Transport, Hospital Link, Link 2 service and any other issues around transport.
The Transport Advocates also took information regarding complaints which were fed back to East Durham Trust who compiled a report and forwarded it to the appropriate organisation.
The Transport Advocates worked from Community Centres at advertised days and times and at other times members of the public can phone East Durham Trust who would pass the query on.
The Transport advocates project was supported by East Durham Area Action Partnership.

What We Do
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation and health inequality. East Durham Trust’s operates on a ‘hub and spoke’ approach through well-established partnerships with our communities. We work directly with community members and partners to facilitate prevention, intervention and crisis support services delivered in our communities, for our communities and by our communities.
We empower people to take ownership of their own needs and work to lift up those most in need in East Durham. We help build and maintain meaningful relationships within our community ensuring those on the margins are helped to be in reach of a spectrum vital services.
