Beverley Community Lift
Beverley Community Lift is a local charity providing caring community transport to take elderly and disabled people out and about from door-to-door. With dedication and compassion we aim to improve physical and mental health and wellbeing, and combat loneliness, by getting people out and about.

What we do
Their car service takes people to vital medical appointments e.g. doctors, hospital, dentist etc. and on other journeys as required e.g. to visit a loved one in a care home. Their minibus services offer weekly food shopping trips and social outings, e.g. to the theatre, for Sunday pub lunches, or to visit a garden centre. In this way, their transport services help people feel connected to their community, as one of their passengers explained: ‘I feel very lonely since my partner passed away.
Using Beverley Community Lift’s car service makes me feel that someone cares. Thank you for your kindness.’ We rely on the generosity of volunteer drivers who donate their time to provide our services, and a warm welcome awaits all new volunteer drivers.
