Aims:

To make it possible for severely disabled and unwell adults and children and dependent elderly people to travel on holidays and day outings which for most would be well nigh impossible by air, rail, standard coach or any other means.

Services provided:

A Jumbulance can be hired to take a party to see local places of interest or maybe disabled supporters of a favourite sports club to watch a match or sporting event.

A Jumbulance can be hired for a longer period perhaps to take a Group on a 10 day holiday or pilgrimage to places all over mainland Europe as far distant as Poland, Austria and Italy.

With all the special facilities in a Jumbulance people can travel safely and in comfort all day and throughout the night subject to EU Regulations, with no need even to leave the Jumbulance when crossing the Channel if a disability or illness makes it inappropriate to do so.

  • 8 stretcher beds, 4 of which are removable trolley beds, with adjustable backrest and knee support
