The Downland Volunteer Group are re-starting their Handibus service from 1 August.

The DVG operates from  Compton from 09.30-11.30 Mon – Fri and provides transport for people who have no other means of travel. We take people to Hospitals, Doctors' Surgeries, Dentists, Opticians, monthly Lunch Club or anywhere else that may be appropriate.

In 2019 close to 1,000 journeys were undertaken by the DVG, they are now open for business but we need your help. We are short of drivers across the area, if there is anybody out there who can help to take patients to their appointments this will be appreciated. There is a reimbursement scheme for fuel in place. We also urgently need some admin staff to cover the phone at the DVG office in Compton.

if you would like to help out please either ring 01635 578394 or email pm.downland@nhs.net
