‘I use YourCar to get to work and then to get home,’ said Susie on her way to her job as a business support officer at the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman. ‘I’ve been using the service for several years now and it gives me the confidence to go to work like any other person.
‘The drivers are great – very friendly and caring. It’s not like a normal taxi – the drivers take on much more responsibility, making sure I’m safe and secure when travelling in my wheelchair. It’s a good, reliable service. I’ve also used it to go to the airport for holidays. A normal cab would just leave you there – but the YourCar drivers will take your suitcase to check in and make sure you’re okay.
‘Without YourCar I would be more restricted. I‘d be reluctant to go out to places and enjoy myself. I would feel like I had less control of my life. I don’t think I would be able to get to work at all. It would be impossible.’
