NOTE If you have your own car or use of a car, and are medically fit to drive, then you cannot use this service.

Where can I go?
Our volunteer drivers will take you locally to the doctor, dentist, our lunch club and activities at St Helen’s, shopping, hairdresser, social events, or to see a friend etc. 
Drivers can wait for up to one hour. They will return to take you home if needed. One booking means going to one place – do not embarrass the driver by asking to go to other places eg shopping, post office, bank before going home.
