GO Mobility offering help to reach coronavirus vaccinations

Teams from a Gloucestershire wheelchair accessible vehicle provider are helping some of the most vulnerable people in our communities reach Covid-19 vaccination hubs.

GO Mobility, based at Staverton, are helping care homes, charities and community groups in the county transport people in the top priority groups.

Managing director Richard Caine said: "We recently became aware of a number of local care homes who had been offered the Covid-19 vaccination for all of their residents, but they had real logistical challenges in transporting their residents to the vaccination hubs, particularly those with more severe mobility issues and wheelchair users.

"As we operate more than 40 wheelchair accessible minibuses, we were more than happy to provide this essential and invaluable service."

He said trained, Covid-compliant drivers would continue to provide the free service.

"It is just our small of way of helping our local communities to beat Covid-19," he said.

"We'd love to be able offer this service to as many people as we are able to and we are planning on continuing this service during January, so if your care home, charity or community group needs wheelchair accessible transport assistance please get in touch."
