Our partnership with Kangaroos started when they approached us to see if we could help provide drivers for their trips out. After a talking for some time it became apparent that Kangaroos would like to concentrate on their excellent delivery and that transport was becoming a bit of a burden that was taking up a lot of time for their staff and volunteers. It was agreed that we would take on the running of the 2 Kangaroos vehicles and provide additional vehicles and drivers for their trips. I return we were able to use those vehicles for the benefit of the wider local community when Kangaroos were not using them. This took the hassle of arranging the transport away from the Kangaroos staff and we are able to guarantee vehicles and drivers for all of their trips. It works well for both organisations as they run their trips at weekends and in the evenings, when our vehicles are mostly available. We love working with Kangaroos as we have got to know the Kids, staff and volunteers well and all of our drivers really enjoy seeing the kids have such a great time!
Kangaroos is a registered charity based in Haywards Heath, which, provides a range of fun, inclusive, year round clubs and trips out, in and around Mid Sussex, for children and young adults with learning disabilities and complex medical needs.
With the dedication of our colleagues, volunteers, trustees and supporters, they strive to enrich the lives of our members and their families, they do not let their disabilities hold them back and enable them, in a safe and supporting way, to participate in the majority of activities that we all take for granted.
