Our community transport service provides lifts to vital medical appointments, to visit friends and family, to get out and about in the community and to attend activities such as community clubs. Whilst most lifts we provide are in the Southend area we will occasionally make trips further afield if needed.
All of our community transport drivers are volunteers however we do ask for a 47p per mile fee to cover costs such as petrol, insurance and wear and tear of the drivers vehicles. Every one of our volunteer drivers are fully insured, DBS checked and hold a full UK driving license.
Age Concern Southend also have a minibus and 7 seater vehicle that are available for hire.
If you would like to use our community transport service, or hire one of our vehicles, please call Pete on 01702 345373. All lifts require a minimum 3 days notice to arrange and depend on a driver being available in your area so please do give our team plenty of notice when arranging appointments.
Please note that medical appointments will always be given priority when arranging community transport lifts.
