Arran Community and Voluntary Service has developed a Community Transport pilot scheme to help support the health and wellbeing of the community.
The transport will be provided by volunteers and is available for people needing to attend appointments such as doctors, hospital and dentists as well as offering them the opportunity to go to local social community functions.
One person who has benefitted from the scheme said: “I don’t have the confidence to drive anymore and I live a distance from the nearest bus stop. This service is invaluable to me, and It’s nice to have a chance to chat to the volunteer driver.”
If you think you could help by volunteering as a driver, or for further information on how to use the service, please contact ACVS Transport Co-ordinator, Sarah Blair firstname.lastname@example.org, or on 01770 600611.
