Community Care provide transport to doctors & hospitals for those who can't find other methods of transport. Run entirely by volunteers in the office (which is above The Map Shop) and drivers, they are a vital resource to the people of Upton and the surrounding area.


Annual Summary Sheet

Upton Community Care

As we settle down from Christmas and look forward to the New Year ahead, how about a new interest as well - with Upton Community Care?

Much has been published about our need for volunteer drivers and we have had a good response from the community for which we are most grateful - so are our clients!

But of course, every request which is made for our service has to be documented and arranged - usually, but not always, a straightforward process - all human life is here!
This all takes place between 9.30am and 12midday each weekday with a volunteer 'manning the telephone' in the office situated above The Map Shop.

All you need as a volunteer is to be able to commit, on a flexible basis, to probably one morning a fortnight, an accurate and kind telephone manner, and basic computer skills (although most of the information we take from our clients is hand-written).

In return you will be making a valuable contribution to helping elderly people living in Upton and the surrounding areas to attend their medical and health-related appointments - for which they have no other reasonable means of transport, and I'm sure you will enjoy being involved with like-minded colleagues as much or as little as you wish. Upton Community Care is a unique and excellent part of our community.

Think on it...I'd love to hear from you.
