Helping you to stay active in your community

As you get older, or perhaps because you’ve
always lived with a disability, it can be hard
to get to those places that really matter to
you. If you fi nd yourself at home more than
you’d like, you may wish you could see more
people in your home.

That’s where Volunteer Action (VA) can
help. We provide a car scheme for those
who cannot access public transport and
can take you to many of the places you
would like to go – not just the hospital and
doctor’s surgery (although they are, of
course, offered!) but also shopping, to the
hairdresser, to visit friends etc. We also run
a befriending service of volunteers willing
to come out & chat regularly. Our aim is to
help improve your well-being and how you
defi ne ‘wellbeing’ is largely down to you.

CAR SCHEME:
We charge our registered members 40p per
mile, with a minimum charge of £3. We have
drivers and cars able to take wheelchairs or
frames.

BEFRIENDING SCHEME:
This is a free service. We will match one of
our volunteers to you. They will come out
to your house a couple of times per month
for a chat. If you, or someone you know,
might benefi t from this, please call the offi ce
to arrange an initial assessment.
All our volunteers hold current DBS checks
and freely give their time.

Our ‘catchment area’ includes Oundle and
Thrapston and extends from Easton-on-the-
Hill through all villages to Titchmarsh.
If you are interested in volunteering with us,
we would love to talk to you. Please get in
touch.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm.
