Providing transport solutions for the local community
This service offers shopping trips to two local major supermarkets on set days and
routes for those unable to manage shopping trips of their own.
The minibus is driven by one of our own volunteers and for just £20 per year membership
and £3.50 per person, per trip, the clients are collected from their own home and
taken to a local supermarket. Once all the clients have finished shopping they are
then returned home or their nominated collection point.
To join the scheme all our clients undergo an assessment in order to ensure that
we satisfy all health and safety requirements on behalf of the client and ourselves.
Further details of the most suitable route, the routes timings and the appropriate
choice of day, along with our obligations will also be discussed at the time of the
After each assessment our Assessor will then try and meet the clients chosen day
and time and place them on the correct Shopping bus. In the event the Assessor is
unable to place them on the chosen bus because the bus has reached its maximum passenger
limit for instance, the Assessor will advise an alternative bus or day.
