About this service:

The transport service offers freedom and independence for people who cannot get about easily or use public transport. We help people to get to medical appointments, to do everyday essentials like shopping, or even just to get out of the house and socialise.

We can provide a driver with a vehicle to offer door-to-door assistance for those in need. Besides transport, we can also provide an escort who, if necessary, will stay with a client throughout their journey.  The service aims to:

  • improve the client’s independence
  • offer a trained volunteer escort, if required
  • enable clients to keep appointments safely and efficiently
  • provide freedom of travel for those with mobility problems.

Our volunteers are fully trained in helping people who have difficulty travelling and those using our specially adapted vehicles must complete accredited driver training.

Referral process:

If you would like further information, please get in touch with your local Red Cross branch office.

Costs:

We normally ask for a contribution to our costs, based on mileage used, but no-one will be refused a service because they cannot pay.
