How this cause brings people in the community together
The Community Car Service provides safe and reliable transportation for vulnerable members of the community in order to help them access a range of medical services or social care visits. Since September 2015 we have recruited 17 volunteer drivers with a core of 8 drivers, registered 60+ passengers and have undertaken 700+ journeys. Most of our passengers are elderly, some have disabilities and others have learning disabilities, social anxiety/mental health issues or struggle to use public transport. The majority of our journeys are health related going to doctor surgeries and local hospitals including Milton Keynes, Stoke Mandeville and Northampton. We are always looking for more volunteer drivers to support the service and more passengers so if you are interested please get in touch!
