Christ church community transport scheme
Christ Church is pleased to offer a community based car scheme. This is a service that provides transport for people who have difficulty using or accessing public transport. It also provides a service for those who struggle to meet the costs of public transport and taxi services. It is a membership scheme with members paying an annual subscription of £15 and then paying for individual journeys at very competitive rates. A typical local journey (Stamford address to Stamford location and return) would cost £5.
The scheme caters for all types of journeys, social, shopping etc. and where possible we try to prioritise medical appointments when booking journeys.
Our team of friendly committed DBS cleared volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to provide a safe and reliable service and will also offer help and assistance where needed.
Christ Church also has a 16-Seater Wheelchair Accessible Minibus which is available for hire to support group trips and other organisational events. The Church also has one dedicated Wheelchair Car. This is used by members who can’t transfer from a wheel chair to a regular vehicle.
Journeys can be booked with our friendly office team on Mondays-Fridays between 9.00am – 1.00pm
If you are interested in joining the scheme we would love to hear from you. You can contact us by calling (01780) 482380.
