Volunteer Connect

Volunteer Connect, which is supported by Cherwell District Council, runs a volunteer transport scheme that helps people with problems accessing public transport and who cannot get to important appointments.

If you need help getting to the doctor, hospitals, dentist, other medical appointments, etc. they will endeavour to find a local, vetted volunteer driver to get you there and back. The price is 45p per mile to cover the cost of petrol. Call 0300 3030 125 if you need help with a journey, or to just register. Read more »
