Transport

John Storer Charnwood Community Transport

Our Community Transport scheme offers a range of transport services to those who find it difficult or impossible to use public transport through disability, age or location. The cost of the journey is subsidised by funding from Leicestershire County Council.

The support network that has been achieved as a result of regular contact between passenger and driver is invaluable, as is the time and care taken by the driver when older and disabled people use our services. The drivers are often the first person the passenger meets in a morning. Each passenger is greeted with respect, patience and understanding as the drivers are fully aware of their individual needs and routines which enable them to leave their homes confidently.

Social Car Scheme

The Social Car Scheme is for passengers requiring car journeys driven by volunteer drivers for shopping, primary health care appointments, visiting, leisure, hairdresser etc.  Please contact either Candi Barnes or Ricardo Fonseca on 01509 631761 to discuss eligibility and cost. Alternatively email candida.barnes@johnstorercharnwood.org.uk
