The service is provided by volunteer drivers who use their own transport. They pick up the client from their home, take them to their appointment and bring them back home.

This service is available to those who have no access to transport of their own, and difficulty accessing public transport. Further if a person is temporarily unable to drive, perhaps for medical reasons, they would also be eligible to use the service

Passenger’s can be collected from their home, to pre-booked destinations, e.g. to attend medical appointments, as and when required.
