Objectives

Our services include:

  • Driving and then escorting people to local medical appointments, includingdoctor, dentist, optician, physiotherapist, podiatrist
  • Taking people to hospital appointments and waiting there with them, and then taking them home afterwards
  • Taking someone to visit their partner in a local care home
  • Other small tasks – call our duty co-ordinator to find out whether we can help

It can be very difficult for some elderly or less abled to get a taxi or walk to and from appointments.  We offer a service where a named volunteer will pick a client up from home and take them to their appointment waiting for them and taking them home.  We do this for a small donation.  Without this vital local service some clients would be unable to make essential medical appointments.  

Activities

We currently have 45 volunteers and over 300 clients.  We aim to fulfil all client requests and would like to raise awareness of this much needed service.
