The transport and escort service offers freedom and independence for people who cannot get about easily or use public transport. We help people to get to medical appointments, to do everyday essentials like shopping, or even just to get out the house and socialise. We provide drivers with customised vehicles to offer door-to-door assistance for those in need. We can also provide escorts trained in first aid and manual handling to stay with clients throughout the journey. We ask individuals for a contribution to our costs based on the length of their journey, and can offer transport to organisations on a service agreement basis. Our volunteers are fully trained in helping people who have difficult travelling and complete accredited MiDAS driver training. Currently the British Red Cross are unable to transport people to appointments on a regular or daily basis, but occasional transport can be arranged by calling the appropriate number above depending on your area.
