Voluntary Car Scheme Drivers (Penistone Area)
The aim of the Car Scheme is to provide lifts for older people who find it difficult or impossible to use public transport and who may therefore be at risk of becoming isolated in their homes. Car Scheme drivers take passengers in their own cars on pre-booked journeys. Trips can be for any reason and tend to be local. For example trips can be for medical appointments, visiting friends, going to the shops etc. The service is project operated by a partnership between Age UK Barnsley and Barnsley Dial-a-Ride.
As a car scheme volunteer you can offer as much or as little time as you like – even a couple of hours can make a big difference to someone.
