Community transport for older people in Lancs

What does it do?

Royal Voluntary Service Transport may be trips to and from hospital or to a GP appointment. Equally, these may be trips to the shops or into town, journeys that enrich lives and really add to the pleasure of day-to-day living. It's especially important where mobility issues can make it difficult, if not impossible, for older people to use public transport and in rural areas with limited transport services. It's cheaper than taking a taxi and local volunteers often become friends. Volunteers use a combination of their own cars or adapted vehicles or mini-buses, depending on the local area.

Royal Voluntary Service can help older people maintain their independence and stay involved in the local community.

We have volunteers across Lancashire who offer help and support so older people can stay independent at home in Preston, Bolton, Lancaster, Southport, Clitheroe, Wigan and the surrounding areas.

See our local services below but we may be able to offer you more. If you can't find something suitable for you or a loved one then just ask.

As everyone is different, Royal Voluntary Service can tailor support to your individual needs. We’ll visit you at home and work with you to create a support package that suits you.

All our volunteers have been DBS checked
