We are a community transport company offering affordable, accessible transport for all abilities within Badenoch & Strathspey. We see transport as the enabler for vulnerable people to access vital life and health services and meet with others socially. Transport is the hub of what we do, but we also offer social inclusion activities, such as lunch and supper clubs, tea dances, befriending services, assisted shopping, community car scheme, support for visually impaired groups and a community link worker service. Our ultimate aim is to reduce social isolation and loneliness by helping people make and maintain social connections and participate in their community.

BANA - (British Acoustic Neuroma Association), is a national charity which supports patients and their support networks affected by Acoustic Neuromas. Our mission is to support people to help themselves after diagnosis. We offer a number of services, including area support groups, a quarterly magazine, member only network forums, information sheets and an up to date website. We listen to our members and strive to offer new services in line with their needs. We support innovative research into acoustic neuromas so that, one day, a diagnosis will no longer be the life changing event it is now.

We are the leading National NGO solely devoted to the conservation of bats and the landscapes on which they rely. Bats are unique and play a vital role in our environment but during the last century bat populations suffered severe declines. We are working to secure the future of bats in our ever changing world by tackling the threats to bats, from persecution to loss of roosts and changing land use. Since 1991 the Bat Conservation Trust has run a diverse range of projects to conserve bat populations. We are part of one of the most successful conservation movements in the world, supported by a network of members, volunteers, academics and professionals. Bats are now protected by law in Europe, and in the UK some species may already be benefiting from the positive effects of conservation, but we have a long way to go to achieve our vision of a world rich in wildlife where bats and people thrive together.
