How to get involved
If you are aged 60 and over or are younger and disabled we may be able to help you with transport and other tasks.
Volunteers use their own cars and normally wait for you to complete your appointment or shopping. They may be able to give assistance where necessary. There is no charge for waiting as our drivers are all volunteers but there is a fuel charge for the transport itself.
48 hours notice is generally required.
For further details and an application pack, please contact the
