Accessible Transport in Christchurch

Helping people with disabilities to get out and about with accessible transport

Accessible Transport

We have a wheelchair accessible vehicle for clients who want to take trips or need help getting to medical appointments. Our driver is a fully-trained carer to ensure you or your loved one is safe and comfortable for the duration of your trip.

The car is available for booking for a minimum of 2 hours, and you don’t have to be in a wheelchair to use this service. We can take two passengers in addition to a wheelchair. As well as driving you to your location, we will remain at the destination to provide support throughout your trip.

How it works

Our driver and car are fully insured and maintained by Liberty Private Care, and we have a Blue Badge for parking to make your destination more accessible, as well as a ramp for wheelchair users.

Get in touch

Get in touch with us to discuss your requirements

Tell us where you want to go

We’ll ask where you or your loved one want to go, when you want to go there, and how long the trip will be.

Tell us your requirements

Let us know what care you or your loved one will require during your outing and about any health conditions we should be aware of. We can then give you a quote for the cost of the service.

Costs

The first 15 miles of the trip starting from our office in Christchurch is included in the fee. After that mileage is charged at 35p per mile.

On the day

We will collect you or your loved one from a prearranged address to take you to your destination. We will then accompany you or your loved one to provide support as required. If you’d prefer us to wait nearby then please let us know and we’ll await your return to take you home.

“Pick up on time. Felt at ease the whole time and the carer was very friendly, polite and professional and stayed with me throughout. Very happy with the service I received as I am quite a nervous person so it was a comfort to me to have a carer that recognised that. Thank you.”
