ICA has two cars and a 12 seat wheelchair accessible minibus
These are available for individual and group trips to doctors, hospital, shopping, social events – anything you need to get to if you don’t have transport.
ICA transport operates on donations and with volunteer drivers
Keith Bedford signed up as a volunteer driver as he has an interest in engines and cars after a long career in the Royal Navy as a Mechanical Engineer. Keith is the Lead Volunteer for our transport offer. As part of this role he monitors the condition of ICA’s vehicles and completes basic maintenance like oil, water and tyre checks, alongside ensuring the vehicles remain clean and tidy for passengers. Keith has completed a ‘Transporting Disabled Passengers’ course, which he now cascades to other volunteer drivers. Keith says, “Finding a volunteer role that fits my interests, skills and lifestyle has been fantastic. It has made me feel like a useful member of my community again. It’s also kept me busy, which is helping to keepme healthy after a serious heart attack that forced me to re-access how I was living. Through my volunteering role, I’ve also met lots of interesting people, most of whom I wouldn’t have otherwise met. I’ve even got my wife to come and volunteer in the office. It’s made a huge difference to both of us.”
