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 offer a befriending service which is free but there are eligibility criteria for this scheme. Take a look at our Befriending page for more information.
We do charge for our community transport scheme, to become a member you can choose between 12 month membership at £24 annually, or a temporary 6 month Membership at £12. We operate with volunteer drivers. They volunteer their time, but we ask that you cover their driving expenses. We charge a minimum fee of £4.00 and we calculate the cost based on a 45p per mile charge. Each completed journey is subject to a £1 Booking Fee.
