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.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
For older people that don’t have a car, have poor mobility, find it difficult to use public transport or that live in rural areas with poor transport links, it can be difficult to get out and about. This can lead to feelings of isolation, loneliness and a lack of independence. Royal Voluntary Service provides community transport to support older people to live more independent lives.
Using their own cars or adapted vehicles and minibuses, our friendly local volunteer drivers drive clients to and from hospital, GP and other appointments, to local shops for shopping and to social visits and activities.
