Our volunteers use their own vehicles to take people to medical appointments.

The cost of using the social car service is based on miles – charged at 0.45 per mile from the persons home to the destination. The transport is free from 1st June 2022 to 31st May 2023 to anyone who is in receipt of benefits or on a low income.

The service can be used for local or long distance medical appointments.
