Supportive Transport- Further Information

Positive Help’s team of volunteer drivers provide lifts to medical care and treatment, social care appointments and activities for people affected by HIV/ Hep C.

If you are affected by either HIV or Hep C, volunteers can help you get to these appointments, collect and deliver prescriptions to your home and we can also help with food shopping trips.

If you are HIV or Hep C positive, live in Edinburgh or the Lothians and are struggling to keep hospital appointments and maintain your drug regime please don’t hesitate to contact us by phoning us on 0131 225 4766 or by emailing us. We will endeavour to meet your request.

We ask that any request for lifts include as much notice as possible so that we have time to match you with a volunteer driver. The minimum time required is 3 working days before your appointment.Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee lifts to meet every request – it will depend on the number of volunteers that are available.

If you are interested in volunteering as a driver for Positive Help’s Supportive Transport service then please go to our volunteer page for information on our upcoming volunteer training programme and how to apply.
