Halesworth Volunteer Centre -
Community Cars Offers an easy way to get to your doctors appointment, supermarket visit or visit to relatives. Anyone, young or old, with or without a disability may ask to make certain journeys for which neither a family car nor any form of suitable public transport is available.
The Car Service phone line is manned on Monday to Friday between 10.00am and 1.00pm.
At other times you may leave a message on our answering machine, but please remember that your request may not be picked up until the coordinator is next in the office. We do ask for a minimum of 2 working days notice of any transport request but will try our best to help out in an emergency.
Our drivers are normally available for journeys during the day from Monday to Friday. Occasionally we are able to meet one-
If you have a routine weekly or monthly appointment, for example going to the hairdressers, visiting a friend or shopping, we can arrange a regular car for you, usually with the same driver. Once this has been set up, you need only contact us to cancel or change the arrangement.
Last year our drivers travelled over 83,000 miles, and responded to over 5,300 requests for transport. Demand for the service continues to increase and we do ask our passengers to be flexible from time to time, particularly with regard to non essential journeys.
If you wish to book a car, or require further information about the service, either for yourself, family member or friend, please telephone 01986 874290 or email the Volunteer Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
