As part of their Community Companions project, the Volunteer Centre has a team of volunteer drivers to help people with disabilities, older people, people with learning disabilities and those with mental health problems to attend medical related appointments:

e.g. hospital appointments, doctor appointments, opticians, dentists, private doctors / clinics, physio and chiropodists, visiting people in nursing homes and hospital.

The scheme is also open to anyone going to a hospital appointment for a procedure that will leave them unable to travel home alone.
