Funded by Milton Keynes Council, Milton Keynes Community Car Service helps those who are elderly or in need of assistance to attend hospital and healthcare appointments and social activities such as lunch clubs. Becoming a volunteer driver provides a door-to-door service for those who need it, and aims to help people in maintaining their health, independence and reducing social isolation.

All our drivers find it a rewarding way to spend their free time because they know they can make a difference to the lives of others! The role does not mean a long term commitment from you, as you will be able to offer your time as often or as little as you are able. Many of the journeys are local but there are times when we may receive requests for further afield journeys.
