IMPORTANT NOTICE (24th March 2020)

The EVDB Trustees' decided to suspend the service EARLEY VOLUNTEER DRIVER BUREAU offers to Earley residents from Sunday 29th March 2020 until further notice. This closure is likely to last for at least 3 months while the COVID-19 (Corona virus) pandemic is still active and we will not re-open until it is considered safe to do so.  


We wish all our Volunteers and their families well over this difficult period while COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is active. We are so grateful for your support and encouragement over many years We look forward to working with you all again to help our Clients when the situation has improved and we consider it safe to re-open the service. Similarly we wish our Clients and their families well over the period of suspension and look forward to being able to help them again. When that happens of course we will resume our normal advertising for more drivers and office staff and hope there will again be plenty of interest in this way of continuing to support the Community then.

We are a much valued local charity (set up in 1982).

We use Volunteer drivers to provide lifts in their private cars for elderly and/or mobility-restricted Earley residents to:-


The service is co-ordinated by Volunteer office staff. If you, or anyone you know, needs our service please ring the Office at the number given above to enquire about registration.

EVDB is partly grant funded, but we welcome donations from other groups and individuals who are interested in supporting our work.

Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) bus passes are valid for journeys made for medical appointments and WBC reimburses us for the costs of these trips.  

There are standard costs for all other journeys.
