HOW TO GET HELP

  1. Phone the office to register as a client.
  2. Office staff will ask for your contact, mobility and disability details and answer all your questions.
  3. We send a letter with further information and a registration form for you to return to us. We ask each client to register with DVC each year and to donate about £5 to pay for our office and running costs.
  4. We enter your details on our computer so that when you telephone to request transport we can deal with this efficiently.
  5. When you make a request please give as much notice as possible and at least 48 hours.
  6. When we have found a driver we’ll ring you to give his/her name and tell you what time you’ll be picked up.
 

COSTS

  • The journey distance is calculated from the driver’s home and back again.
