At Thirsk Community Care, we love to hear how our services, like the social car scheme, are helping local people. In this story, we hear about how the social car scheme is not only changing the lives of our clients, but also their families too.
Annie’s father had become confused and his wife, an older person herself, found supporting him exhausting. The day service was in Northallerton and they had no way of getting him there, until they contacted Thirsk Social Car Scheme.
Annie shared with us:
“I can’t begin to say what a difference your support has made, not only to my dad, but all the family.
My mother gets a much needed rest. She can truely chill for the day – Wednesdays are really important to her. Please pass on a massive thank you to the volunteer, his care and support are truely invaluable.
Thanks to you too and all at Thirsk Community Care for providing an excellent service to the people of Thirsk”.
