Travel Buddy Scheme

We are excited to let you know about a new volunteering opportunity that is now available to support those that struggle to get to their GP & Hospital appointments.


We’re working with Community Transport Sussex (CTS) who is the leading provider of community transport services in West Sussex. Their aim is to relieve social isolation and loneliness across the county through the provision of safe, accessible, supported, door to door transport for those who have difficulty accessing the mainstream transport network.


The Travel Buddy Scheme is a CTS led service which recruits volunteer drivers to use their own vehicles (mileage will be paid) to transport people to their local GP Surgery or hospital for appointments and return them home again. For those with a bit of spare time this will provide a much needed service to some of our more vulnerable patients.


A dedicated Travel buddy coordinator is leading the scheme and is responsible for recruiting volunteers and matching them with people who need assistance. They are on hand throughout to offer support and advice.
