Towcester Area Door-to-Door Community Transport

Towcester Area Door-to-Door Community Transport

Towcester Area Door-to-Door (TADD) is a long-established charity operating a door-to door community transport service for people across the West Northants area. The service enables the elderly and disabled to attend medical and well-being related appointments and services. TADD is affordable and helps people retain independence in the absence of suitable public transport and avoid reliance on family, friends and neighbours.

During the COVID pandemic there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of journeys made, however we have continued to provide transport for those who needed it. Routine appointments are beginning to be made once again, the flu and booster vaccine campaign is starting up and we are seeing an increase in requests for transport. If you, or anyone you know, would benefit from joining and accessing the service please do get in touch.

We desperately need volunteer drivers. There are many elderly, disabled or isolated people who rely on TADD in our community, so if you have a little spare time and are a driver, please consider volunteering to help your neighbours. You never know when you might need to use the service yourself!

Drivers need to have access to a car, be available on a fairly regular basis and are required to complete a DBS check. Mileage is reimbursed at the HMRC rate, insurance premiums are not impacted and journeys are allocated weekly by mutual agreement.

To learn more about becoming a member or volunteering for TADD please get in touch:
