    Free Taxi Provision to Access Vaccination Clinics

    Sheffield City Council is offering support to provide a taxi service to anyone unable to access their Covid jabs at a vaccination clinic because of transport difficulties, who otherwise could not or would not attend. Sheffield City Council will then receive an itemised bill of the trip and cover the cost. This arrangement is currently running until 31st March 2022. If you meet the criteria and have a disability we can help by arranging a taxi for you ( using a code provided by the council ) so just get in touch.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
