Community Transport

Denstone Voluntary Car Scheme

Originally launched in April 2006, this door-to-door scheme is now being re-launched to help residents in the Parish who are without access to a private car and are also unable to use public transport due to infirmity, age or disability. The scheme is supported by the Parish Council and Staffordshire County Council,

Passengers will pay a fare to the volunteer driver in accordance with set charges based on mileage and generally in line with public transport costs.

If you need to get to the Doctor, Dentist or Optician, or have a hospital appointment, we will try to help. For non-local visits to hospitals we will need 48 hours notice except in an emergency. The service will operate between 8.30am and 6.00pm on weekdays only.

The scheme depends on volunteer drivers and the more we have the greater the coverage and the wider the spread to volunteer time. Do you have a car and a few hours a month to help support our neighbours to feel less isolated?

For more details and to register your interest in either using the scheme or volunteering please contact the Coordinator:
