Transport to attend funerals is a priority of this service. Transport may also be available to assist you in accessing medical, shopping and social outings.

Where possible bookings should be made at least one week in advance to allow sufficient time for arrangements to be made.

It may not be possible to provide assistance at all times due to availability of resources.
