‘A local Charity making a difference for local people’
Tavistock Area Support Service has for the last 27 years been helping local older people through the various services we offer.
Transport is crucial to helping get people out and about and here at TASS we offer a wide range of transport solutions, from Wheelchair Accessible Transport, Shopmobility, Transport to Health, TASS Out and Aboutand supporting other Community Groups in getting out and about.
Transport to health has developed to provide transport to help get people to their hospital and Dr’s appointments. The service is run by a core of volunteer drivers who travel 1,000 of miles a month.
Shopmobity is available to anyone with a mobility problem, helping them to access local shops and amenities. We provide scooters, power chairs, wheelchairs and walking aids and if needed these can be on a short term loan agreement or to help people on holiday.
TASS Out and About, runs trips out to various venues and weekends away, including a Sunday Lunch Club! The minibuses are driven by volunteers and can pick you up from your home and return you home afterwards. These trips are varied and last year we covered over 10,000 miles
We can also help you if you are a community group by providing our minibuses to help Your group get out and about.
