Update on the impact of coronavirus.
Currently our fully adaptable mini-buses are not available for hire for trips out
and our trips for our 2 social clubs are also suspended.
We are currently working with other local charities and organisations to determine how we can make best use of our buses and volunteer drivers in order to help people in the local community who are currently self-isolating.
We will contact our registered Group Users and social club members as soon as it is safe to resume our usual activities.
Please stay safe and follow the latest government advice.
If you need help contact telephone number 0113 376330
which is a free number.
You will be put in touch with local co-ordinators and volunteers in your area.
Stay safe and please seek assistance if you need it.
FDM is a local community transport charity based in Rothwell, South Leeds.
We operate 2 fully adapted minibuses, a 16 seater and an 11 seater, which can be booked by registered Group Users. For more information about how to register please visit our Group User page. Our 16 Seater bus is pictured below.
A key aim of FDM is to reduce social isolation and support independence.
