Our complementary brand, first4care, is a leading Special Educational Needs transport provider with a staff of 100 and 60 ambulances providing specialist transport under Local Authority contracts across Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire for children and young people with Autism, physical and mental disabilities, and high dependency needs. Our Human Touch brand has enabled the SEN transport to be extended across Lincolnshire and Peterborough so more children and young people can benefit from travelling as independently as possible, in as safe, secure and comfortable a way as is possible.
Our Special Needs Transport Service provides bespoke support for commissioners and individuals in achieving this. You can be totally confident that the care, comfort and safety of the client during the journey is our highest priority.
We have a wide range of vehicles to ensure that we provide the right one for the right situation and for the individual’s needs. We carry clients in their own wheelchairs, seated or on a stretcher. If clients have special medical needs such as epilepsy, severe allergy or feeding tubes, staff are fully trained to deal with these on an individual client basis.
For added comfort and confidence we encourage carers and a family member to accompany the client if required and for regular contracts, we try to match the crew to a regular client, so that continuity of care is offered.

- Restricted mobility
- Life-threatening conditions

- Significant sensory and/or communication impairment
- Behavioural, emotional and/or social difficulties
- Autism and Communication difficulties
- Autism and Severe Learning Difficulties
