HCT Group launches 2017 Social Impact Report
HCT Group is a social enterprise, reinvesting the profits it makes from transport contracts back into high social impact transport services or projects in the communities we serve. We aim to make a real difference to people’s lives and what we’ve achieved each year is set out in our annual Social Impact Report.
The report was launched on 20 July at an event held at the St Luke’s Trust Community Centre. The event was attended by a host of stakeholders - staff, service users, board members, social investors, commissioners and more – in our largest impact report launch to date.
The report sets outs our achievements for the year. Not only has our commercial side performed very strongly, we’ve had a great year for social impact
- 333,000 passenger trips for disadvantaged individuals or community group members
- Our Learning Centre on track for another strong year – with 132 people who were long-term unemployed gaining jobs as a result of qualifications earned at the Learning Centre
- 68 young people with SEN now travelling independently through our travel training programme – and the increase in life chances that will bring
Behind each of these numbers is a story – of increased independence, of connections with the community, of new opportunities. As a consequence, the report explores the full impact of our services on people's lives with data gained from survey research and focus groups.
“HCT Group is all about social impact, making a difference to people’s lives” said Dai Powell, HCT Group Chief Executive. “I am delighted that we could share what we’ve achieved over the past year with our stakeholders.”
