Membership of the Network
Any community transport organisation who wants to apply for community transport funding from SPT or tender for transport contract work on behalf of SPT must be a member of the Network.
Membership of the West of Scotland Community Transport Network is available to Community Transport Operators in two tiers:
Basic Membership – community transport operator’s which are working towards full compliance with the Quality Framework.
Full Membership – community transport operator’s who can supply evidence and prove compliance with the standards relevant to their category contained within the framework. These operators will be awarded accredited status.
On receipt of the application and the relevant documentation being in order an assessment visit and vehicle inspection will be arranged. The assessment visit will be undertaken by SPT to gather the evidence outlined in the framework.
For CT operators that meet the required standards for Full Membership, accreditation is awarded annually for 12 months.
Such organisations will be allowed to use the Networks “Accredited Operator” logo on vehicles and stationery during this period.
Support and training will be available to community transport operators experiencing difficulties in achieving or maintaining standards from SPT and members of the Network’s Steering Group.
Basic members will be offered support to enable them to reach full membership under their relevant compliance category.
