Volunteer Car Service

"We aim to connect people, reduce isolation, relieve loneliness and improve quality of life"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

The Volunteer Car Service is a Kirklees wide service for people who struggle with conventional forms of transport for different reasons.  We find a volunteer and you pay their expenses - it really is that simple.  We urge those who can to use existing forms of transport like buses and taxis, however we know that some just cannot use these forms of transport.

Our service is caring and understanding of passenger needs.  Although we work closely with people with disabilities, our luggage limit and manual handling means that we refer wheelchair users to appropriate vehicles in our community transport accessible vehicle fleet.

We take people to destinations like shops, clubs, friends, plus appointments like to see a GP, visit hospital, and even hair-dressers.

During Coronavirus, we have additional control of risks associated with transport, in place.
