The Welwyn Hatfield CVS Community Car Scheme provides a transport service for older people or people with an illness or disability who cannot use public transport. Local volunteers use their own vehicles or our specially adapted MPV vehicles to collect clients and take them to health-related medical appointments, shopping or social activities.
The scheme is partly funded by Hertfordshire County Council, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and East & North Hertfordshire CCG.
All of our volunteers have been DBS checked and are cleared to drive; some have even been with us for many years giving up their time to help the scheme and community.
Specially Equipped Vehicles
Using our specially equipped people carriers, we are able to transport people easily who are unable to transfer from their wheelchair to health related appointments. Our staff will ask you for your requirements when you book your appointment.
What are the requirements?
Staff and volunteer drivers work together to provide quality transport for:
- Medical appointments
- Support groups
- Day centres visits
- Visits to sick relatives and friends
We require a minimum of one weeks notice to help find you a driver. We get quite busy and sometime it is not always possible to fulfil your requirements however, we will always try our best.
Carers, Support Workers and other agencies can also refer clients for assistance.
Single or return trips are 60p per mile from the volunteer’s home and we try our best to match you to a volunteer in your area but this is not always possible.
Please contact us on the details below if you would like to book transport.

In the interest of everyones safety – staff, volunteers and clients
The Welwyn Hatfield Community Car Scheme transports mostly vulnerable and elderly clients through its service. Hand sanitiser and masks can be worn for those who are extremely vulnerable but under no circumstances must anyone use the transport service if they have symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.
