Community transport service

Voluntary driver service

Voluntary drivers will collect members in a car from their home and take them to appointments, social events or essential journeys. The voluntary drivers provide transport in their own cars and all drivers have had a DBS check.

We have a wheelchair accessible vehicle that may be pre-booked with a voluntary driver if you need to travel whilst seated in your wheelchair. A safety assessment will be undertaken before you travel.

Subject to completion of a short training course, family or friends can hire the wheelchair accessible car to take you out in. A charge will be made based on the mileage covered.

You can make 3 bookings in advance and we will try to accommodate regular bookings where we can. We will always try to accommodate your request for a voluntary driver, however, this service is dependent upon driver availability.

A minimum of 3 days notice is required for booking.
