Voluntary car scheme

This section contains details of voluntary car schemes which operate in several parts of Devon. These schemes are where car owners give up their time to drive people who do not have their own transport, often to attend medical appointments.

They usually only charge a nominal fee to cover petrol costs. Advance booking is usually recommended - please check with your local provider to find out more.
