We can provide you with safe and suitable community transport to keep you connected in your local area. Suncare provides a volunteer transport service that can take you to personal appointments, family visits and recreational activities.
How we can assist
We can arrange more than a door to door trip. Our team can go above and beyond. We can help you get organised for your appointment and make sure you settle back in once you arrive home.
We can support you by offering trips to;
Hospital - to and from and accompaniment whilst waiting
GP and other health appointments
Groceries and supermarket visits
Hairdresser and personal grooming appointments
Social events and outings
Family and friend visits
Our team can schedule a one-off trip or regular, ongoing outings. Just let us know your requirements and we'll work with you to accomplish what you want.
