Whatever you want to do, concerns you have or support you need, there are a wealth of organisations and charities that can help. Have a look at what's available here.
Items such as raised toilet seats, bath boards and seats, walking frames, and grab rails can make a real difference to your safety and independence.
If you're part of a group of people who need transport for an event or a trip, there is a scheme which can help.
Westway Community Transport, serving Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Kensington and Chelsea, offer a Group Transport Service. They have a fleet of minibuses available for use by voluntary and community groups. It has both standard and specially accessible vehicles to cater for the needs of all sections of the community.
If you or your group members want to travel in a wheelchair, or find getting up and down steps difficult, then a tail-lift bus will be best for you. If nobody in your group has mobility difficulties, you will probably find a standard minibus will be ideal.
You will need to be a member of Westway Community Transport before you can book a minibus and driver.
If you are already a member, to book a vehicle and driver call 020 8964 4928.
Residents of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster can also access a car scheme with volunteers on hand to assist you in getting to almost any occasion.
The Civic Services Minibus Service provides door to door accessible transport for older people and people with disabilities attending day centres and luncheon clubs within Hammersmith & Fulham.
It is also used for day time and evening outings, journeys to and from placements and college runs. This service is operated by social services, seven days a week and 52 weeks a year.
