We need your help to purchase a minibus!

ACCESS LEWISHAM helps 160 vulnerable Lewisham residents a week who can no longer use public transport.

BUT this is not ENOUGH!! We have over 100 people on our waiting list, who are unable to use public transport, and desperate to get out of the house.

For example, John (83) who has a recent diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. He is on a small budget and was recently admitted to hospital following a fall (he has been at home for some weeks now) and has weakness in his legs and arthritis which restrict his mobility so he can no longer take the bus as he did in the past.

With your support, we can stop them feeling trapped and alone. Please donate and share.

Every donation counts, whatever amount. Please give what you can!
