A useful one stop shop that helps people think positively about some of the worries they have if they can no longer drive. It looks at the practical stuff around planning journeys using public transport and what help is available if people are disabled, on using the internet and support to get on-line.

Stopping driving also doesn’t mean people have to lose their independence but it can mean that how people socialise and connect with others may change. Our website helps people find out what’s going on in their local community and how to deal with any concerns they may have about becoming isolated or lonely as a result of stopping driving.

We can help over the phone, by email or in person at our offices as well as online.

We work with people who live in Berkshire. Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Wiltshire.
