Volunteer Car Scheme

 

Aims

Our aim is to enable members of our community to access medical and social appointments. Our volunteer drivers will take clients to their appointment, wait for up to 2 hours and then return them home again.

Who can benefit?

We can support any members of our community who are unable to use taxis or public transport. 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 individually priced – 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”
