This grant has enabled many people to retain their independence and do their own shopping and trips out. This in turn must have an impact on the shops and the local economy. They also know that carers appreciate their service, as it often gives them some respite from their caring duties.
“I enjoy getting out and being able to do some shopping for myself. The scheme helps me to get around town and down the seafront with my family.”
“Gets me out of the house which makes me feel better”.
“Able to socialise and be independent. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy or indeed join family for holidays if this service wasn’t available. Thank you.”
