Community Car Scheme

Our volunteer drivers will take you to medical appointments (this includes visits to dentists, physiotherapists, etc.).  You need to be a member to use our system but registration is free of charge. Please see our Community Car Scheme page for registration and booking information.

Volunteer Action drivers can also be booked to take you shopping, visit family and friends, attending hairdressing or other appointments. Please book these drives well in advance, at least 3 days prior. We will always try to accommodate your requests but please note, medical appointments will take priority. See our Community Car Scheme page for booking details.
