The Petersfield Voluntary Care Group
Established in 1975 as a result of a meeting held by PACT (Petersfield Area Churches Together) PVCG has, over the years, provided thousands of drives for anyone in need, for a small donation as we are a charity.
Where public transport doesn't exist, we do. Our aim is to "Give Petersfield a lift!" using our caring and considerate drivers in their own private cars. We are fully insured.
We drive people to medical appointments, such as hospitals, doctors' surgeries, dentists, and ophthalmologists. We also do shopping for the housebound on a regular weekly basis, and during the pandemic, shopping and prescription collection and delivery for those isolating.
We are hosted by Winton House Centre who pass on driving requests to us and act as our agents.
We are part of the Good Neighbours' Network based in Portsmouth.
We work in partnership with the organisations listed below
Operating with a set of policies in place covering Data Protection, Health & Safety, Equality & Diversity, Safeguarding and Risk Register, we are governed by a Constitution, our Registered Charity Number is 1192308.

Covid Heroes' Award
On 23 July in the beautiful garden of Winton House Centre, Chairman, Mrs Alison Gauld showed all guests this certificate which had been awarded by Cllr Lesley Farrow. She thanked all those dedicated drivers for their service in continuing to drive bravely throughout the pandemic, even before receiving a double vaccination.
It is going to be framed and then displayed in the office at Winton House Centre for all to see.
