Voluntary Car Service

Voluntary Car Service

The Voluntary Car Scheme is now suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. Humber & Wolds Rural Action are following the Government guidelines and the service will be operating again as soon as it is safe to do so. We endeavour to keep in contact with our registered passengers to ensure that they are receiving the support they need. Any passenger who has not been contacted can get in touch with us if they have any support needs. We are still open to new passenger registrations and anyone wishing to register may contact us for a registration pack. We are keeping in touch with our volunteer drivers to ensure they are safe and well during this time. Some of our drivers fall into the high vulnerability categories and therefore cannot drive at this time. If you are volunteering as a driver to support essential services during the current health crisis and wish to continue in the future, please contact us to find out how you can continue to provide invaluable support to local people that have no other access to transport for health appointments, shopping or visiting services or family members (for example in care homes) For further information please contact us on 01652 637700

Community Led Plans support

A Community Led Plan, formerly known as a Parish Plan, is a step by step process for communities to develop a plan for the future, which takes into account the needs of all who live and work in the community. The Action Plan developed as part of the process, sets out a vision and how this will be achieved. Community Led Plans are suitable for any size of community, be that rural or urban and take on average 12 18th months to complete.

Community Review

What is a Community Review? It is a short community consultation exercise that will identify the prioritises, the needs and aspirations and the actions that local residents would like to implement in their community. Lengthy consultation processes are unsuitable for smaller communities, so Humber & Wolds Rural Action will provide a support package to enable these settlements to conduct this process and give the community a voice in decision making.
