What does it do?
Don’t have your own transport? Struggle to use public transport?
We may be able to help! We operate a volunteer transport scheme from Monday to Friday, covering Wantage, Grove and outlying villages. We drive clients to Drs, hospitals, shops, to visit friends, and more! There is a charge for using the transport scheme and you must call to book in advance.
Who it is for?
The Independent Advice Centre in Wantage provides a range of services to the people of Wantage, Grove and District.
Where it is available?
