Community transport

Dial-a-ride services are back in operation, providing transport services across the borough to residents with a mobility impairment who need help attending vaccination appointments, GPs, Opticians and other related appointments. Up to two clients from the same household may travel at one time.

CSVA (Central Surrey Voluntary Action)

We are working closely with CSVA to ensure help is given to those most in need. The CSVA is providing aid to vulnerable residents who may need support with shopping and other essential provisions. CSVA are also looking to set up a walking buddy scheme for those who need some support to regain confidence when going out.
