About Us

The Community Bus is a mobile project working in areas of Bath & NE Somerset where there is social deprivation and exclusion.
We reach adults and children who are geographically and socially isolated.
The converted double decker provides a safe and stimulating play environment for young children who do not have access to other play facilities. It provides a friendly meeting place for adults to share ideas and concerns.
The Bus runs family sessions in term-times, playschemes for 5-13 year olds in the holidays and participates in community events.
