Getting out and about
Part of leading an independent life at home is being able to get out and about when you need to.
For some people this is being able to get to the shops easily, going to the doctor's, visiting the library, or meeting up with friends. It could also be going to community support groups, memory cafés, or lunch clubs.
Many of these support groups and activities, and how to get to them, are listed in our service provider directory.
You may be a disabled driver or passenger who needs to be able to park close to shops or other facilities. You could be eligible for a blue badge. You can find out more in this section.
Volunteer drivers can help to get some people to the places they need to visit.
