How to contact us


The Balsam Centre, Balsam Park, Wincanton, BA9 9HB

Telephone: 01963 33864


This is our postal address but if you are coming to the centre using a SATnav then use the postcode BA9 9JF, which will bring you to the High Street where you can turn off into the Memorial Hall car park and the front of the building.

We are based in the Balsam Centre in Wincanton; make your way to the Memorial Hall off the High Street and continue through the car park, around the corner to the right, and you will find the centre on your left - see the map at the top of the page. We are there Monday to Friday, 9am - 12.30pm.

If you would like to see a copy of our "Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy and Adults at Risk Policy" you can download a copy here.

If you would like to use the CATbus or need a car, you will need to join the scheme.

Come and chat to us and whether it's a weekly trip to the supermarket or a one-off trip to hospital, we can help. You can pick up a form in the office and we can sign you up straight away. Or you can download the Application form and bring it with you. Or give us a call on 01963 33864 and we can pop one in the post to you which you can either give to the driver on your first trip or post back to us

We are a non-profit making charity, whose objective is to provide transport at an affordable cost to people unable to travel via the normal public transport. It could be that the nearest bus route is too far from home, the bus doesn't stop near enough to their destination, or they are unable to get their wheelchair on the bus. The service we provide means much more than being able to go shopping; for many it is an outing, a chance to meet and chat to others both on the bus and in the shops, helping to combat isolation for rural residents. Regular weekly users get to know each other - and the driver. But we would not be able to offer this service this without donations and the fantastic support from our sponsors.

If you would like to support us, you can donate to the charity or become a sponsor.

You can download a Gift Aid form here, (we will be able to boost your donation by 25% if you are a UK taxpayer), or speak to Mike or Jayne if you would like to sponsor us. Alternatatively, you can click on the button below to make a donation to us.
