Headway Guernsey members are delighted to be able to use Health Connections Volunteer drivers scheme. Philippa Stahelin, Headway’s Executive Director says.
“ Most of our members are unable to drive following their serious brain injury but desperately need to access services to prevent isolation. 3 members regularly use volunteer drivers during the week, which means they no longer have to pay for taxis and, more importantly, they find that the drivers are polite, friendly and patient. Some describe them as becoming a new friend, someone who understands their issues and makes them feel comfortable and relaxed. From a charity point of view, we see how much happier our members are for being picked up by people they know and have formed a friendship with. They are an amazing group of people and we love them!”
