AT Accounts is a family firm and we face many of the same challenges that other small business face. We are also active in the community; we support lots of different good charities and causes to try and make a difference everyday to the lives of local people.

One organisation that is close to Amanda’s heart is The Community Driving School CIC; she is a supporter of the organisation and gets involved in the day to day activities, as well as being a champion of the cause across her network of contacts.

Formed in 2016 by director, John Nicholson, the aim of the Community Driving School (CDS) is to allow those on a low wage, unemployed, young carers and students access to jobs previously beyond them, by accessing funds to assist in paying for lessons. The ultimate aim is to obtain a valid UK Driving Licence.

Being able to drive is one of the single most important skills a person can have and is quite literally life-changing.  It offers freedom to travel anywhere at any time and opens doors to employment that were previously out of reach.  For example, jobs involving driving, mobility or simply being able to get to a remote location not easily accessed by public transport.
