Support to get out and about

 

Outreach provides 1 to 1 support to be able to go to the places that are important to you. A trained and experienced member of staff will accompany you on essential shopping trips, or to visit places you like such as local parks, cafes, gym, cinema, theatre etc.

Community Transport - our accessible vehicle can be booked to take you on these visits or for GP appointments, hospital trips etc. The vehicle is driven by a member of staff who is experienced in ensuring you have a safe journey and can support you to and from your home, unlike a general taxi. A mileage charge is payable and the service must be booked in advance.

Travel training provides 1 to 1 support for everyone who needs increase their independence using public transport. Perhaps you are a young person who hasn’t used a bus before and needs some support, or you have been unable to get out of your home for a long time and have lost your confidence. Travel training is bespoke to meet your individual needs. An hourly charge applies.
