If you experience difficulties with getting out and about, such as travelling to appointments or visiting friends and family, the Sawtry Car Scheme may be able to help.

The Sawtry Car Scheme is volunteer-led and for people who have difficulties getting to or using public transport. Those who do not have access to a car or any other means of transport can request a lift.

The scheme can be used for attending appointments, for example medical appointments with the GP, chiropodist, opticians; attending hospital appointments including Peterborough, Hinchingbrooke, Papworth and Addenbrooke's hospitals; and visiting friends and family in the area. Journeys to personal appointments and meetings, plus accessing public services, could be undertaken.

A number of users have commented on how useful and valuable the scheme is to them. There is a charge for this service to help the volunteers cover the cost of fuel and motoring costs. To find out more, please contact us, download a leaflet for more details or contact the Scheme Co-ordinator on 07810 476979 and leave a message.
