Voluntary Car Service

Please be assured that we are following Government advice on the Coronavirus outbreak with regards to our voluntary car scheme.

All drivers and passengers are being asked to contact us straight away should they display the following symptoms:  fever/high temperature and a new persistent cough.

For further information please contact Carole Foster on 01652 637700.

The service uses volunteer drivers, who use their own cars, to take individual passengers on journeys to destinations of their choice, both within and beyond North Lincolnshire, e.g. hospitals, doctors' surgeries, local shops, community group meetings, day centres, residential homes, etc.

The volunteer drivers give their time freely, but passengers are charged a mileage rate of 45p per mile to cover the cost of fuel and other vehicle running costs associated with the journey. The mileage is calculated from the driver's home, to the passenger collection point, from there to the passenger's destination and return. The rate charged is per car and not per passenger, i.e. you will not be charged more if you are accompanied by a friend/relative. We have voluntary drivers located across North Lincolnshire and whenever possible, to keep charges to a minimum, we try to allocate the driver who lives closest to the passenger concerned.

If required, our drivers are happy to provide help and support for their passengers at their destinations. They will normally wait for their passengers at their destinations for up to 1½ hours. All our volunteers are CRB checked, but we do not transport children under 18 years of age.

For more information about using the service, please contact the enquries line on 01652 637700 between the hours of 9.30am and 12pm, Monday to Friday (answer phone facility outside these hours).
