Volunteer Car Scheme

Volunteer Car Scheme

 

Aims

We aim to support the local community to get to medical and social appointments to help them maintain a healthy, happy, active & enjoyable lifestyle.

Our volunteers will take clients to their appointments and will offer to wait for up to two hours offering emotional support during the drive.

Who can benefit?

Anyone who would find using public transport challenging due to age, health conditions or restricted mobility.

We cannot transport children who need a car seat or anyone under the age of 18 (unless accompanied by an adult). We also cannot transport anyone who requires manual handling to get in and out of the vehicle.

Is there a cost?

Our journeys are reasonably priced and only cover volunteer expenses. Each journey is quoted individually – ask for more information.

Client quote…

“I’ve been using the car scheme for the last 12 years. Without this service I don’t think I would cope. Everyone is so helpful and can’t do enough to help me. The drivers help me with my walker and in out of the car – everyone is so kind and talkative and make me feel so much better”
