The Social Car Service was established in 2012 with cross-border funding from ‘Cooperation and Working Together (CAWT) following a consultation with Older People living in North Leitrim and West Cavan, who identified a need for affordable transport to medical appointments. It has been subsequently funded by the HSE and operated by Leitrim Development Company.
The Social Car Scheme operates in North Leitrim and West Cavan and uses volunteer drivers to bring people aged 65 years and over to non-emergency HSE appointments. There is a fare chargeable for this service, which varies from €10-€20 depending on the length of the journey. If you wish to avail of this service or wish to become a volunteer driver, please contact the Social Car Scheme on 071 9641770.
