Michael Robinson, a Solicitor from Ramsdens Solicitors LLP Private Client Team has been appointed as a Trustee for Community Transport Calderdale in Halifax.

Michael Robinson was eager to support and join the current Board of Trustees to help move the charity forward to assist more residents in Calderdale and Kirklees with transport needs.

Community Transport Calderdale (“CTC”) aims to provide transport for those residents of Calderdale and Kirklees who cannot access existing forms of transport for reasons of ill health, isolation, disability, poverty or social exclusion.

CTC help their members access health appointments, supermarkets and other social events important to those residents.

CTC’s core services are community car service, accessible minibus service and home from hospital minibus service. More details of the services that the charity provide can be found at

Michael said “Community Transport Calderdale (“CTC”) is an extremely important link to residents of Calderdale and Kirklees who need that helping hand with the little things in life and the support provided is a lifeline to those residents. I administer estates where individuals who have sadly passed away without leaving a Will and a number of these individuals have either lost contact with their family entirely or they have kept themselves to themselves and in the most extreme cases the individuals have “slipped through the net” and have not been offered any support whatsoever. The team at CTC and their fantastic volunteers aim to support the local residents, providing a new lease of life to some residents due to their circumstances. CTC are covering a very rural and expansive area in Calderdale and Kirklees and residents can benefit from these important transport links. I am very much looking forward to supporting CTC, the team and their volunteers in the years to come.”

Peter Hancock, Chair of CTC commented "We are delighted to welcome Michael to our board and feel his skills and personality will help us achieve our aims for the future. CTC are keen to forge links with businesses in the area and look to expand the skill set available and make the organisation resilient and sustainable for the future.”
