Go North Devon was founded in 1992 in response to a need to provide suitable transport and mobility services for those who are frail, have a mobility problem, a disability (physical or sensory) or who are isolated within the community and are unable to use public transport or do not have independent means of travel to access town centre facilities. The first services to be provided were “Ring & Ride” and “Shopmobility”.
Over the years further services have been added, these are the “Out and About Club”, “Transport to Health” and the “Cancer Care Car service”.
Our services enable clients to retain their independence whilst helping to prevent isolation and loneliness which may occur when there is no access to private or public transport. It helps those, who may be living on their own, to form new friendships, to enjoy social interaction and build confidence. Our Transport to Health services ensures patients who do not have access to any form of transport are able to travel to the Hospitals to receive their healthcare.
Go North Devon is a charitable organisation and relies on the willingness of volunteers and a range of grants and fundraising activities to maintain the provision of its services.
We have a wonderful team of volunteers but we always need more to continue to provide our services.
We are a charitable organisation and we rely on people’s generosity to enable us to keep our services running.
Go North Devon are always looking for new friends to support our fundraising.
