Community transport

Transport services for older people for outings and appointments

What does it do?

Every year, Royal Voluntary Service volunteers undertake some 90,000 journeys on behalf of older people. These 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.

Additional information:

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 their own cars.
