Volunteer Action accepts members from the catchment area who do not have reasonable access to other transport and who are in receipt of the State Pension, or are living with a disability or other significant difficulty. If you are not sure if you qualify as a member, please contact the VA office.
As a local charity, our ‘catchment area’ includes the towns of Oundle and Thrapston and the villages from Easton-on-the-Hill in the North and Titchmarsh in the South. You must live within the catchment area to use our services. Please see our Community Car Scheme page for a full list of the villages that we serve.
We do charge for our community transport scheme. We operate with volunteer drivers. They volunteer their time, but we ask that you cover their driving expenses. We charge a minimum fee of £3.00 and we calculate the cost based on a 40p per mile charge.
