Getting out and about

Royal Voluntary Service volunteer helping older lady get out and about

One in three older people find it difficult to get where they want to go, particularly if they are without a car or find the bus difficult. Transport is vital to helping older people stay independent at home and active in their local communities - and we are here to help.

Every year, the Royal Voluntary Service provides around  87,000 journeys to hospital and GP appointments, to the shops or into town.
