Where it is available?

What it costs:

Dorset Partnership for Older People Project (Dorset POPP) provided start-up funding for this scheme, with the aim that the scheme would become self-funding. Donations are requested. For journeys to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole hospitals and return, suggested donation is £13, for local journeys £4 - £5 per return journey.

How to access or apply for it:

Telephone Mrs Joyce Little on 01202 980839 with details of your journey.

What to expect then:

Mrs Little will contact an available driver to book your journey and ring you to tell you the name of the driver and the arrival time at your home.

Additional information:

The scheme operates Monday to Friday. Our drivers are volunteers and use their own vehicles. Please give us as much notice as possible.
