Community Car Scheme - Bentham

How does the car scheme work?

A volunteer driver will pick you up at your door and take you to your health appointment, waiting up to two hours for you and dropping you back home.
Health appointments we can help you get to include:
• Doctor's appointments
• Dentists
• Chiropodists
• Opticians
• Hospital appointments
• Physiotherapists


Our drivers are all volunteers and give their time for free, but we do cover their expenses. For some trips we have a flat-rate fee, for example, for someone in Settle to go to the doctor's surgery in Settle Town, we would charge £2. To go to Airedale hospital, it would normally be around £22.
