Many volunteers at Heritage House offer their skills to ensure the high quality of care enjoyed by the 150 day visitors who attend Heritage House each week.
Amongst these are the volunteers who staff the transport service which is so vital for the day visitors. These volunteers offer four types of service:-
We have a small dedicated fleet of wheelchair adapted minibuses. To drive these vehicles you have to have the following:-
- A D1 category on your driving licence (all those who passed their test before 1997 will have this category on their licence)
- A B1 category on your driving licence (all those who passed their test after 1997 will have this category on their licence)
On each journey, the minibus driver is accompanied by an assistant. The assistant is vital in working with the driver as a team to support day visitors to and from their home and securing them safely. Training is given in this work, including the management of the wheelchair lift at the back of each ambulance.
