In partnership with Richmond and Kingston Accessible Transport (RaKAT) we run two minibuses. Services include 5 weekly shopping buses, attendance to day centres and community services and weekly excursions.
Clients must be registered with Hampton & Hampton Hill Voluntary Care or referred by one of our partner organisations to use our minibus services.
Where possible we try to offer a door to door outward and homeward journeys, but this is dependent on access as judged by our drivers.
When necessary, Passenger Assistants support the driver during the journey ensuring everyone is safe and assisting with carrying heavy bags.
Services must be booked in advance and passengers will advised of an estimated pick up time.
Shopping buses run to:
- Sainsbury’s Supermarket, Canley Park, Hampton. Every Tuesday and Friday morning and every other Friday afternoon
- Home Link, Whitton Respite Day Care Every Monday
- Linden Hall Day Centre Tuesday and Thursday
- Elleray Hall Day Centre
We ask that a minimum donation of £2 per journey is made to help towards the costs of running the minibus services. A journey is a one way trip.
We organise trips to local places of interest a once a week. A list of planned trips is provided to registered clients who have indicated they wish to receive this information. A charge is made for these services dependent on the nature of the trip and distance covered. Not all trips include admission charges.
Short Notice Cancellations
Please note that due to the nature of our service which relies on a volunteer team we may need to cancel services at short notice.
