Trips can be arranged to attend hospital appointments, the surgery, dentist, shopping, hairdressing, visiting friends and relatives. During busy periods priority will be given for hospital or doctor appointments.
We do not have access to wheelchair accessible transport therefore you should be able to get in and out of a car unaided and be able to walk a short distance.
How do I book a journey?
Call the social car desk on 01353 666553 Monday - Friday from 9.30 - 12.30. There is an answer phone at all other times.
All our drivers are volunteers who have an enhanced DBS check.
It might take some time to find a driver for your journey so please give us as much advance notice as you can.
How much will it cost?
Passengers make a contribution of 40p per mile towards the cost of the journey. This is from the drivers home and back again. There is a minimum contribution of £6.00, which covers all journeys up to 15 miles.
If you are on certain benefits and are making a journey to a hospital it may be possible to claim some of the cost of this journey back.
