South Derbyshire CVS Practical Help Transport

We also continue to run our popular Social Car Scheme alongside the practical help scheme. This is a volunteer transport service. We aim to match up transport requests with volunteer availability. Because our drivers are volunteers we may not always be able to meet your needs, however we will always do our best to help you with your journey.

The Social Car Scheme can enable people to:

•  Attend medical appointments

•  Visit a relative or friend

•  Attend social activities

•  Go shopping

The scheme is open to anyone who lives in South Derbyshire and is unable to use any other form of transport. Enquiries and bookings can be made Monday - Friday Mornings (9:00am - 12:00pm) and transport is available seven days a week subject to the availability of drivers.

The scheme is non profit-making.  However there is a charge made to the client of £1 per journey booked, plus 45p per mile (which is paid to the driver to cover their expenses).

Email  or call 01283 219761 to find out more.

If you are able to volunteer to help provide this service to the community, please contact the scheme on the above details.
