As a volunteer driver for your Community Car Scheme, you could offer a lifeline for local, isolated people, who would otherwise find it difficult to get to medical appointments or connect with their community.  To find out how you can help, please contact Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority on 01223 790149 or email

Cambridgeshire Constabulary - The importance of using the right system when contacting the police:     
It's not uncommon for call handlers to receive over 1,000 calls to 101 in just one day, and plenty of those calls are matters that could be dealt with in more efficient ways, like online reports or live web chat. 
This is why we're encouraging everyone to learn more about the different ways to contact us, and when each method should be used
