Community Cars provide older people with door-to-door transport. They do this by recruiting volunteer drivers who give their time and use of their own cars. All drivers are carefully vetted, requiring police checks, or a PVG, two references, and a health check. Cars are also subjected to safety checks.
People can use the service for many purposes, such as visiting friends, attending social events, shopping, or medical appointmets. Community Cars plays an important role in helping older people to remain independent and to maintain a good quality of life. The only costs for this service relate to covering expenses for the volunteers.
