The Plan B Government Covid 19 restrictions have been reviewed and we have taken guidance and we continue with the information from 19 July 2021: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/news/article/2285/open-letter-from-health-partners-about-covid-guidance-from-july-19-

Covid 19 has not gone away and with rising cases in the area, we have made the decision to continue with our current protocols in order to protect the health and wellbeing of those who use our services, our volunteers and our staff, many of whom come under the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable group.

Therefore, we will continue with the following:

  • Face coverings must be worn by our volunteers and passengers within the community transport service
  • Good ventilation, this includes windows open in vehicles and offices
  • Frequent hand washing or the use of hand sanitiser
  • Strict cleaning procedures
  • Social distancing of 1 metre plus
  • Visitors to the office must be by appointment only

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!”
