Our transport service is provided by a local taxi firm and available to all members who live within a 5 mile radius.

In addition, all members can register themselves on the 'occasional users' transport list and take lifts to or from the club if the weather is poor or they are feeling unwell.

How to Apply to attend the Social Club

Self referrals are welcomed and referrals can also be made by social workers, GPs, family and friends. We will arrange for members and carers to visit the Club and discuss their needs.
