The Shopping Bus service offers shopping trips to three local supermarkets on set days and routes for those who are unable to manage shopping trips on their own. The Minibus is driven by one of our own volunteers picking up our clients from their own homes, (or their preferred collection point), taking them to the local supermarket for that appointed day. Once all the clients have finished their shopping the minibus will then return the clients back to their home or their preferred collection point.
All Shopping buses have volunteer escorts to aid any shopper that needs help around the store or requires help in carrying their shopping to their premises. As an additional service, our escorts will collect a shopping list from anyone who is unable to go shopping on the nominated day through illness or other unforeseen circumstances and deliver their shopping to them.
Just make a quick telephone call to the office and we'll arrange for our assessor to visit you in order to conduct a simple assessment. We need to do this to ensure that we satisfy all health and safety requirements are met on both behalf of you, the client and ourselves. We'll also discuss which days and shopping buses are available to you along with our obligations and further details of the service.
After the assessment our Assessor will try to meet the clients preferred day and Shopping bus and will also advise the possible date of commencement. In the event the Assessor is unable to place the client on the chosen bus because the bus has reached its maximum passenger limit for instance, the Assessor will advise an alternative bus or day.
