We are no longer using face masks in our Community Transport service but we will still be using face masks for journeys where clients are immunosuppressant or request this when they book. Please let us know if you are in a Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group.

We will review this regularly and continue to take advice.

Why I Volunteer

“Volunteer driving has been a lifeline for me. My wife died last summer, and for a time I was feeling lonely and bereft. But VASA welcomed me with open arms and now I drive three journeys a week. This is a vital service for the community and has made a huge difference to my life as well!”
