Service description:
Voluntary car schemes operate with volunteer drivers using their own vehicles to take passengers to pre-booked destinations. These are often for medical appointments, but can also be for other reasons.

The schemes typically charge an annual membership fee. The passenger then pays the driver for any trips - this is calculated on mileage.

Passengers book a journey in advance with the scheme co-ordinator who matches up the travel requirement with the drivers available. Drivers collect passengers from their home, taking them to their appointment and returning them back home.

Services are often subsidised by Northamptonshire County Council.

The Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service is part of the South Northants Volunteer Bureau (SNVB), and provides transport for people who are unable to get to medical and social care appointments, which might include:

• Doctors
• Dentists
• Opticians
• Hospitals
• Chiropodists
• Day Centres

They also take people to visit relatives who are in hospital or residential care. Northamptonshire Highways
