Dawn Edwards from Anlaby, Hull, uses West Hull Community Transport to get out and about.

Dawn uses the dial a ride service to keep active ‘I have been registered as disabled with multiple sclerosis for 20 years but I have always tried to remain independent. Up until quite recently I had the use of my mobility car, but due to my condition I felt it difficult to keep up enough confidence to feel safe driving, as I do get tired very quickly.

‘I am now still able to do most of what I did by using West Hull Community Transport. I have always kept as active as possible as my fitness is very important to me. Using this service has allowed me to continue regularly going to the gym and to be able to go swimming. I also use the service for a day centre visit once a week and for regular visits to the doctors and hospital.

‘So, as much as I liked having my own car, using this service has made me not miss it or the responsibility of it very much at all, which is a great thing. I occasionally try to use public transport but find it very difficult, so this service is invaluable to me.
