HCT Group is the world’s leading transport social enterprise. Our founding commitment is to the role that transport can play in ensuring that the most vulnerable and marginalised in our society can access jobs, education, services – or even the simple freedom of getting out and about.
We earn our revenues from transport contracts won in the marketplace, delivering them to a high standard. Profits are then reinvested into high social impact transport services or projects in the communities we serve, and into providing training opportunities for people who are long term unemployed – making a real difference to people’s lives.
This model has allowed us to grow from strength to strength. Our track record spans a wide range of services – from London red buses to social care transport, from school transport to the bus networks in both Channel Islands, from community transport to training for skills and employment.
Over the past 25 years, we have grown by well over a hundredfold - from our roots as a small community transport provider in Hackney to a social enterprise with truly national reach and ambitions, employing over 1000 people and a fleet of over 600 vehicles.
With growth in our scale has come significant growth in our social impact. In 2016 this meant that we could provide over 400,000 passenger trips to disadvantaged people or community group members - and our Learning Centre supported over 200 long term unemployed people into work.
We believe that this is just the beginning. We have ambitious plans for the future, seeking to grow both our scale and our social impact through quality services, deep innovation and listening to our communities.
