So far ten people have signed up to join the scheme as drivers.
Many more are needed so if you have some spare time and are willing to assist other members of our community to travel to medical visits do please get in touch. You can help on a case by case basis, all of the drivers are notified of the clients need and asked if you can help, no regular hours or days required.
You can simply complete a copy of the form on the drivers page of this site or contact us for more information of how you could help.
A vital role for the scheme is the job of the coordinator who puts together the drivers who are available with the passenger's needs.
The task would be carried out with a mobile phone which the scheme would provide.
If you have had some administrative experience you may be able to offer some hours for this job.
Ring 01785 851381 and speak to Joy or Peter for details of how you could help.
With the support of the voluntary drivers the Eccleshall Voluntary Car Scheme is up and running.

We are not a taxi service and may not always be available.
First step is for you to register as a member of the scheme, the form is on this site or can be posted to you. Best to register IF you think you MAY need our help in the future and register now. Press here for link to the form on this site.
HELP GETTING TO YOUR COVID JABS
Nowadays more and more of us have to get to a Covid jab centre and need a lift to do so. The Voluntary Car Scheme is happy to help with transport for this vital health journey.
MAIN PURPOSE OF THE SCHEME
We try to arrange transport for elderly Eccleshall people to medical appointments when they have no means of transport of their own or access to them.
All of our drivers live in Eccleshall and are prepared to transport Eccleshall folk to their appointments.
If we have a driver who is available we will do out best to help you with your medical transport needs
