Can we help You get out and about?
We are supported by the Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council, Broadland District Council and South Norfolk District Council for our work with the most severely disabled and older people who are on a low income in our community and who need a specialist Door to Door service. The current arrangement is: The charity offers subsidised fares. Our services do not receive any concessionary fares funding.
Once accepted to join the organisation the passenger pays an annual £15 registration fee. Standard single journeys are £3.00 each way and an average journey is usually 3 miles. For longer journeys, between 4 and 10 miles, the fare is £5 each way and we will quote individually on journeys exceeding 10 miles.
