We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

Tayside 4x4 Response is a charity which responds to requests for assistance by statutory organisations such as NHS, Police, Fire and local authorities when conditions cause significant difficulties in day-to-day operations, generally caused by significant weather events such as snow or flooding.
We can be tasked to assist stranded drivers, take NHS staff such as district nurses, GP's or ambulance crews to patients, deliver meals on wheels, move equipment or simply get staff to and from work. The Councils may also use us to check on vulnerable individuals and transport them to a place of safety if they are stranded due to the weather.
All requests for assistance would be considered, however our response volunteers require suitable protective equipment, communication equipment and self-recovery equipment. Mandatory training is also required to be undertaken and this all costs money. Fundraising volunteers are a key and vital part of the team to ensure we can provide our services to the vulnerable people in our communities in times of need.

Organisation aims and objectives

Tayside 4x4 Response supports the statutory services in times of operational difficulty to allow them to operate and respond to the most needy when normal day-to-day operations are affected by severe weather and/or poor road conditions.
