Charity information

Tunbridge Wells And District Volunteer Bureau

We have a few projects. Our main one is to provide safe and affordable transport for vulnerable people who can not use public transport. We also have social inclusion projects going on throughout the year as we know many of our customers are socially isolated. The aim of these projects is to get them out and about meeting new people and making new friends. Many of our customers have dementia it is not safe and they don't feel safe going out without someone with them they know and trust.
