about us

Who are we?

All our members live in Ferring. We are unpaid volunteers giving freely of our time and using our own cars.

All our drivers are DBS checked and certified.

Our phone (07736 773035) is manned for 2 hours each day, 9.30 - 11.30am Monday to Friday. If you are having difficulty making travel arrangements to reach your medical appointment (hospital, doctor, dentist, physio, podiatrist) call us and we will try to help.

Our telephonist will take your details and search for an available driver for that day. Please give us as much notice of your appointment as possible.

Like all people, illness or other unforeseen circumstances very occasionally mean that we have to cancel a booking. We do know this is very disappointing, but please be assured that it is the very last resort.

Likewise, if your appointment is cancelled for any reason, do try to let us know as there may be someone else who could use your slot.

Friends of Ferring is an offshoot of the Ferring Retirement Club, registered charity number 1040624.
