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.
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!
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.
