Shopping Service

Our shopping service offers door to door transport for people with disabilities or mobility problems, whether temporary or permanent. It is available to anyone whose disability or mobility problems prevent them from accessing public transport. The service offers support with shopping, banking, and visiting the Post Office.

 

If you or someone you know are interested in using the service, please phone the office on 01870 603881, and we'll be more than happy to provide you with more information and give  you a registration form. Upon completion of the registration form, we will contact you to let you know if your registration has been accepted, after which we will provide you with a service agreement. We have an open policy system, which means that anyone can make a referral or refer themselves.
