Dorset Community Transport Directory
Find your Local Community Transport team
maintained by Dorset Council, to get you where you need to be and help you to make essential journeys to places like the hospital, doctors, dentists, opticians and some offer transport for shopping and social trips.
Many of these schemes are only in existence thanks to the generosity and support of local volunteers.
If you or somebody you know is interested in becoming a volunteer driver or organiser, please contact your local scheme to discuss how you might be able to help them.
SEDCAT (South East Dorset Community Accessible Transport) is a charity dedicated to meeting the transport needs of people with mobility issues to prevent social isolation and loneliness. You can phone them on 01202 534 027
Using minibuses, they take people from their homes to shopping areas and on outings. A community car scheme using volunteer drivers helps people get to appointments and a Shopmobility scheme hires out scooters, powered and manual wheelchairs.
