Transport service, Hull

What does it do?

We help people to get to medical appointments, to do everyday essentials like shopping, or even just to get out of the house and socialise.

We can provide a driver with a vehicle to offer door-to-door assistance for those in need. Besides transport, we can also provide an escort who, if necessary, will stay with a client throughout their journey.  The service aims to:

  • improve the client’s independence
  • offer a trained volunteer escort, if required
  • enable clients to keep appointments safely and efficiently
  • provide freedom of travel for those with mobility problems
.

Who it is for?

We provide door-to-door transport for people who cannot get about easily, restoring their freedom and independence.

Where it is available?

Local service (East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston upon Hull).

What it costs:

We normally ask for a contribution to our costs, based on mileage used, but no-one will be refused a service because they cannot pay.

Additional information:

Could I volunteer for this service?
Without volunteers, we would never be able to give people the help they need in a crisis. Because we offer so many services across the UK, we depend on people who generously give up their time to help others. Become a transport service volunteer.
