Who are we?
We are a group of local people, all volunteers, who offer a helping hand to Eastleigh residents, very much as a good neighbour would do.
Our main aim is to provide transport to get the elderly or infirm to doctors or hospital appointments and to help them to maintain some independance
We will consider all requests from local people to help with tasks that have become too difficult to manage around the home or who are unable to use public transport to get to their appointments. .
Could we help you or perhaps your mom and dad ? Read below and see how we could help you.
How we can help you
We can provide transport from home for
- hospital or other medical appointments
- visiting (family or friends in hospital, lunch clubs, etc)
- Hair appointments
- Post Office
How to get our help
To request our services, you are invited to ring our answerphone on 023 8064 2420 or contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The answerphone isn't manned all day but is checked late afternoon on weekdays only by a Coordinator who will try and match your request to an available volunteer. The Coordinator will normally contact you that evening.
Give us as much notice as you can if you need a lift to an appointment. We would normally only take bookings two weeks in advance.
How much does it cost?
We are a non profit making organisation and therefore ask for a donation from you towards our costs, particularly for transport expenses.
See our Scale of Donation Requests (pdf file) for more information.
