Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service

Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service was set up over twenty years ago to help those without access to any transport within Brackley and its surrounding villages attend medical appointments.

Due to our continued success we now have just over 400 registered passengers and nearly 50 volunteer drivers who last year completed an amazing 2500 return journeys. Our volunteer drivers are community heroes, who undertake hours of driving to ensure our members can attend their medical appointments.

Year on year our survey results prove just how much our service means to those in our community.

We are hiring!

Due to the continued success and expansion of the Brackley Area Volunteer Car Service, we are looking for a Community Transport Manager to add to our team.

Passenger Membership

Our membership runs from 1st April – 31st March and currently costs £35 per annum.

To register with us, please telephone us on 01280 841099 between 9.00am & 1.00pm, Monday to Friday and we will post you a membership pack.  Alternatively send us a message here…

The more notice you give us to arrange a journey, the easier it is for us to find a volunteer driver.  We prefer people to book a week in advance of their required journey and the absolute limit we require is three working days notice.   However, we do understand that this is sometimes not possible, so we always accept bookings at the very last minute.  In these instances, we can never guarantee a driver but we will always do our best.

We can help passengers living in the area shown on the map (click the map for a larger image).


Drivers – Volunteer !!

Can you spare two hours a week at a time convenient to you? Do you like meeting new people and helping those in your community? If so then we would love to hear from you!

We rely on volunteer drivers to take people to medically related or social care appointments. These people are generally elderly and have no other reasonable means of transport.

We have an absolutely amazing group of loyal and friendly volunteer drivers but are always looking to recruit more, especially from the Brackley, Charlton and Kings Sutton areas.

Our passengers greatly value the service, as proven year on year as they continue to renew their membership for our service.

As a volunteer driver you will choose how many journeys you do and whereabouts you drive too, so it really is completely flexible as we work around your availability.

Volunteer as a driver now!

All drivers receive a mileage allowance and the knowledge that they are helping to provide an essential service within their community.
