Description

Kinross-shire Volunteer Group and Rural Outreach Scheme operate a befriending and driving service for the residents of Kinross-shire and Glenfarg.
Our volunteer drivers provide a variety of services to make life easier for the elderly or infirm of any age.
This can be providing transport to hospitals, the health centre, community centre, shopping, visiting relatives or a trip to the hairdressers.
We are not a taxi service, we offer much, much more than that. Our aim is to help to improve the quality of life for people and give them a greater feeling of independence.
