Community car schemes going from strength to strength

5 February 2018

Community car schemes can be a vital link for some older and vulnerable people to get to their appointments. At CIB, we've helped set up some really successful examples.

Community Transport Hub flyerHaving only set up in May 2017,  the Ivers Good Neighbours Car Scheme has just driven their 100th client, and Prestwood Area Community Transport are celebrating serving their local community for 20 years. They’re hosting a special lunch to say thank you to all their volunteers drivers in March. We’ve worked out their volunteers will have made around 10000 trips with local people since 1998!

Did you know there are over 40 volunteer community car scheme across Bucks? Contact the Community Transport Hub on 0800 085 8480 to find out if there’s one in your area.  

However, there are many towns and villages where older people still need help getting to appointments, so if you are interested in becoming a local volunteer driver for a couple of hours a week, please contact Helen Archer on 01844 348833.
