Getting Out and About

Coronavirus support and guidance

One in three older people find it difficult to get around, particularly if they don’t have a car or find public transport challenging. Royal Voluntary Service provides community transport to help older people get out and about more independently, to stay active and social and to get to where they need to be.

Our volunteer drivers take clients that need help with transport to GP, hospital and dental appointments, shopping trips and to local social events and activities.
