The Swale Volunteer Centre Volunteer Transport Scheme is available to all local residents who have difficulty using public transport. There may be a number of reasons why you may not be able to use public transport such as accessibility, times, mobility and costs.
The Volunteer Transport Scheme will help you to attend essential appointments such as doctor, dentist and hospital.
There is an annual fee payable to Swale Volunteer Centre to help cover administration costs. Journeys are charged at a rate of 45p per mile (with a minimum charge of £4.50) and are subject to a small admin fee.
When booking a driver please notify us of any mobility aids to ensure we can accommodate these and the approximate length of time your appointment is likely to take.
Your driver will be happy to wait with you for a reasonable time (up to 2 hours).
The telephone line for booking is open Monday – Friday between 09:30am and 14:30pm
