    Mid Weald Voluntary Cars Forum provide a simple solution to transport problems in rural areas particularly for the older, more vulnerable or disabled residents. They all operate differently – some are dedicated wholly to transporting people to medical appointments, surgeries and hospitals and others take people to a whole range of different locations and activities.

    The Action in rural Sussex Village Care Programme helped to identify and set up a network of such Schemes which developed into the Mid-Weald Voluntary Cars Forum with the aim of providing mutual support and promote further development in Community Transport.
