As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, TRIP have made the difficult decision to cancel all outings along with the Ring & Ride service. The emergency voluntary car service will still remain in place.

As the situation progresses TRIP and a number of local organisations, individual and council members have set up an action group to help deal with the effects of Coronavirus and coordinate a response. This group will provide vital services such as hot meal delivery, shopping delivery, dog walking and prescription delivery. We ask that anyone who is able to volunteer fills out the form by clicking the ‘Volunteer With Us’ button. Additionally, to those who are struggling at the moment or are aware of an individual who is struggling, we ask that you will out the form by clicking the ‘Ask for help’ button. Using these systems lets us manage our response. For any other enquiries related to our Coronavirus response, please email [email protected]

As the number of cases of COVID-19 increase throughout the UK, TRIP wants to ensure that both its service users & volunteers are Up-To-Date on how we are dealing with this.
We are and will continue to follow the latest advice from NHS England & The Government.
We aim to continue operating our full service but hope you will understand that some services may be affected due to a shortage of volunteers should the virus progress further in our area.
The NHS have released a webpage ( https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/) providing members of the public information about coronavirus. We ask that you follow both the NHS & Government advice and seek medical advice before using any TRIP services if you are presenting any symptoms.
Remember that thoroughly washing your hands is one of the best defences from coronavirus, more information can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51711227
For our drivers we have released the following advice
