Changes announced to allow easier access to the Haddenham Community Vehicle (HCV)

The community vehicle is a service that has been set up to encourage more social interaction for those who find themselves isolated by nature of disability. The term disability is used here to mean any condition that makes travel in an ordinary vehicle, public or private, difficult to access, not just those confined to wheelchairs.

It has been decided by the HCV committee that this service should be financed by voluntary donations (rather than a specific charge) for any disabled person living within the area served by Haddenham Medical Centre — so the vehicle is available to residents in various other local villages as well as those in Haddenham.

This decision has been reached because the committee recognises that some families are not in a position to fund travel easily for disabled members and that others will choose to give larger donations to support the service. It is hoped that this change will truly allow anyone to access the service and still fund the running of the vehicle. The true cost of the service is around 70p per mile.

With around twenty volunteer drivers available, we look forward to serving you soon.

Our Co-ordinator, Sue Brigham, can be contacted on 07495366779 or via email at haddenhamcv@gmail.com to book a journey.
