Our Services

  • Driving Service (Basingstoke, Tadley & Sherfield-on-Loddon) Open or Close

    We help older people reach:

    • - Hospital and other medical appointments, dentists, opticians
    • - Social and exercise clubs
    • - A loved-one in hospital, nursing or residential home
    • - Shopping, taking you there

    Our drivers will always arrange to take you home afterwards

    Donations are crucial in keeping the charity funded. We ask all clients for a donation, and this is agreed between you and the coordinator taking your call and will be appropriate to the length of your journey. Your donation reimburses vehicle costs incurred by our volunteers and contributes towards the cost of our coordinators available five days a week responding to driving requests and arranging for volunteer drivers.

    Simply phone our Helpline on 01256 423855, open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm with an answer-phone service outside of these hours and tell us about the journey you need to make. We will then try to match your request to a volunteer car driver who is available. We take requests for longer journeys.

    If you are a new client, please call our help-line and register. We need at least 48 hours’ notice to enable us to find a suitable volunteer. We mainly cover people living in Basingstoke, Old Basing, Sherfield-on-Loddon and Tadley.

    Our coordinators will discuss sympathetically all the help you need. Our drivers can easily take a foldable walker and in some cases a foldable wheelchair. Clients must be able to get in and out of a volunteer’s car themselves as our volunteers are not trained to assist with this.

  • Befriending (Basingstoke and Sherfield-on-Loddon) Open or Close

    We help to combat loneliness in those who are housebound and living on their own. We match people up with our volunteer Befrienders, who then provide a regular weekly visit for a chat over a cuppa.

    Please contact me, Sarah, for more information about our Befriending Service. Contact Sarah on 01256 423867 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
