Driving Miss Daisy - Ipswich

Coronavirus Support

We provide essential transport, shopping & medication deliveries 

We combat isolation by taking customers out within the (Ipswich) community

We ensure safe, friendly and clean standards at all times

General Details

We are a safe, friendly and reliable companion driving service in the local community

We assist on all kinds of trips - as a personalised wheelchair taxi service with mature companions who can accompany customers on any trip of their desire, ranging from doctors appointments to places like Felixstowe

We provide much more than a trusted taxi service as we help those less able to get out + about in the community, which helps with their social inclusion and avoids feelings of isolation - particularly if the family are not based locally

Our customer base varies hugely including some with Parkinson's, dementia, autism, MS, broken necks/backs & just old age! In fact our oldest regular customer is over 100 and our youngest just 14!

Consequently our wheelchair accessible vehicles are in great demand - but do need pre booking!
