Community Support Fund

Community Support Fund 2021

Metrobus connects communities, by providing access to work, education and healthcare. Social connections, made possible by bus, are vital in bringing people together and help combat isolation and loneliness.

As well as connecting communities it's really important to also do what we can to provide help and support within the communities we are proud to serve.

One of the ways we are able to help and support is via the Community Support Fund. Twice a year we donate small pots of money and free bus travel to local charities and community groups. 

Funding is available from £50 to £500 with similar amounts for bus travel.

Awards are decided by the community team panel at Metrobus, which consists of colleagues from across the organisation, and will be judged on how well our support will serve the community in which we operate.
