A Statement from Voluntary Action Angus (VAA)

VAA has been working closely with Angus Health and Social Care Partnership over a number of years to provide an Angus wide volunteer driving scheme. This has enabled people in Angus, especially in rural areas who often experience difficulties finding transport, to access various health and social care services and community based groups.

We are pleased to announce that the volunteer driving scheme will be run by Angus Health and Social Care Partnership from October with continued input from VAA. We wish to provide reassurance that people who meet the required criteria for this service will continue to receive this support. We are very grateful for the significant effort made by volunteers in developing this service which plays a major part in building an Angus that actively cares. This is just one of the many examples of innovative partnership working between VAA and Angus Health and Social Care Partnership, which helps ensure the best possible services are available to people in Angus
