OUTINGS

VOLUNTEERING TO HELP ON OUTINGS:

Sometimes it’s useful to have help on an outing – especially if we have two wheelchairs to push. If this is something you’d like to do, ring us on 0207 586 5153.

Neighbourcare hast its own minibus and we use it to do 3 to 4 outings a week (on average).

 

To be invited on the outings you first have to fill up and return our questionnaire (click here).

 

You can see what kinds of outings we do by looking at the questionnaire.

 

When completing it, try to choose a moment when you’re feeling good (or at least try to remember what feeling good was like). Tick as much as possible – anything you don’t tick, you won’t get invited to.

 

Don’t be put off if you need a wheelchair. We have two spaces for wheelchairs on the minibus. We also carry a fully collapsible wheelchair. Don’t worry if you use a walker – we can find space for that too.

 

Once you’re on the outing list, we’ll ring you from time to time and invite you. The phone call usually comes between 3 and 1 days before the event. The less you can get by yourself, the more invites you will get. You will also tend to get more invites if you normally say “yes”.

 

You will pay any charges for entry tickets, food, etc.  We also welcome donations towards the cost of running the minibus.
