The Jumbulance Trust

The Jumbulance Trust is a small national charity that enables severely disabled and unwell adults, children and dependent elderly persons to travel on holiday in the UK and Europe.

The Trust provides the vehicles and drivers at subsidised rates to groups around the UK and Ireland.

They have two large modern "Jumbulances" (coach/ambulances) that make it possible for those that need extra care or specialised facilities to travel.

Groups can hire a Jumbulance to take a party to see local places of interest or disabled supporters of their favourite sports club to watch a match or sporting event.

Jumbulances can also be hired for longer periods such as taking a group on holiday, to go skiing or on a pilgrimage to places all over mainland Europe, as far as Poland, Austria and Italy.

The Trust takes volunteers and a professional doctor on all of their trips to care for their travellers, giving their families a chance to relax without care responsibilities.

Further details of local groups can be found on the website or email: info@jumbulance.org.uk
