Volunteer drivers use their own cars to take people to appointments where there is no reasonable alternative transport available.

Passengers pay a 45p a mile charge to help cover the driver's fuel cost.

Please call for further information or to book a journey.

The service was established April 2012 as a project of Citizens Advice.
