Community Car Service

Our Community Car Service provides a lifeline to older vulnerable people who may struggle to leave the house due to their location, being unable to walk long distances, not having family or friends nearby or not having access to public transport.

We have one paid co-ordinator who liaises with our wonderful band of volunteer car drivers to provide help with attending hospital or doctors appointments or just visiting friends.

Our service has a huge impact on the lives of elderly residents throughout Calderdale only.  

Our volunteers use their own vehicles to provide this service and to cover their costs there is a minimum charge of £2.25 per journey with a mileage charge of 45p/mile after that. Click here for a mileage rate calculator for more specific costs.  Please note that costs apply from the volunteer drivers leaving their home and returning.

Volunteer drivers go through a DBS check as part of our Safeguarding procedures.
