Out and about

Whether you are doing some shopping, going to a hospital appointment or having a day out there is lots of support to help you, and the person you care for, get about. 

There are national schemes that can help with:

Accessible toilets

Parking (Blue Badge Parking Scheme)

Motability (mobility cars)

Find out what discounts you, and the person you care for, may be able to get on public transport or vehicle tax.

You may also be able to get support to take a holiday.

Discounts and free entry at visitor attractions

Visitor attractions or leisure facilities may offer discounts to you and the person you care for, find out in advance.

Find local support

Contact your local carer service to see how they can help. Many carers services run trips for carers, with or without the person you care for.  

Other local organisations may be able to help with trips out and community transport.
